Primitive Cabinet Pre-Makeover

I have has this discount store cabinet for years!! It's one of those cheap put it yourself together items that I think I've had for at least 10 years. My husband HATES this cabinet & threatens to take it outside & burn it....the door never stays closed.... I looked at it the other day also hating it and wondered hmmmm, I'd love a new cabinet but can't afford one so the brainstorming began! I am truly make do, forced out of finance mostly but I love a good challenge! I had my hubby cut me a little piece of wood to use as a latch & have my trusty sponge roller & magical black acrylic paint. What can black paint, sandpaper & antiquing gel not fix? We'll see!! They say you can't paint these laminate pieces but I figure I have nothing to lose!! I am beginning the project tomorrow so keep an eye out for the transformation! I'll be posting more pics soon of another project and my little downstairs bath that I am also getting ready to tweak. Happy Sunny Sunday!!!!  ~Kriss~


  1. You have a great idea for that little cupboard. Can't wait to see how it turned out.

  2. I have painted laminate before. I try to sand it a little to rough up the laminate. Then I paint several layers of paint on it. Can't wait to see the "new" cabinet.


  3. Hey Kriss...I have painted this kind of stuff for and sand it first and you should have no problem. Cant wait to see your "after" pics. Check back at my blog ...I am doing a hooked rug giveaway next week !!!

    Grace to you,
