Giving new life to the thrifted farmhouse cabinet with an easy paint refresh
We moved into the new house, which means some furniture may find a new place in our home.
I have loved this thrifted farmhouse cabinet I made over and the added storage it gave our master bathroom.
Just by adding paint, changing the door pulls, and adding antique mirror film, that refresh gave the cabinet a whole new look.
Moving means a new opportunity for an old thrifted cabinet.
We had an alcove next to the fireplace in the new house and I knew this thrifted cabinet would have a new life in that corner.
If you’ve followed me for a while on my journey or if you’re just joining, I am a sucker for all things rescue: animals and furniture.
I’ve made it a point to scour the pages of Facebook Marketplace or the local thrift stores to furnish our homes.
Needless to say, I’ll try pieces of furniture in different spots in my home or give them a facelift before I even think about passing it on to the next person.
While I loved the thrifted cabinet, the navy color needed a change.
I asked and unanimously everyone answered
I put a poll out on my Instagram stories for which color of dark gray everyone recommended.
Unanimously “Iron Ore” by Sherwin Williams was a color I heard many many times and I figured, why not?!
(Which by the way, if you’re not following along on Instagram, I share a lot of behind the scenes.)
Even after the first coat of Iron Ore, I fell more in love with our thrifted cabinet!
I was afraid the color wouldn’t be dark enough, but I truly think it’s enough contrast to break up all the black we already have in the house.
I’m so glad I decided to give the thrifted farmhouse cabinet a facelift, again, and I think she’ll be perfect in her new home, the living room.
I love having versatile pieces of furniture that can easily be moved from one room to another. Painting a piece of furniture is way more cost effective, than buying new.
