Brave with paint..

I love this cabinet. I bought it over 11 years ago in Brown Thomas. My boss at the time was so genourous - the Celtic Tiger and all that and had given me gift vouchers for BT's. It felt slightly flamboyant and even a bit irresponsible to buy more clothes as we had a house to furnish. I figured if I bring my parents into town with me I would be REALLY responsible and buy something for our house. We went for coffee and had a lovely day shopping and I purchased this cabinet and a writing bureau which I still truly love. I have wanted to paint this cabinet for quite some time but I was worried I would ruin it. I took the bull by the horns yesterday and ...Voila!

  2. Webb..sophisticated sounds good to me. Thanks x

  3. Great job. I agree that it looks a lot better painted. How did you paint it, BTW?

  4. totally didn't ruin it! looks amazing, good job. i've been getting paint happy myself these days!

  5. It looks great! I really want a cabinet like that one, they're great for showing off all your treasures, I'm running out of surfaces to display all my stuff.
