Reloved – Display Cabinet

Reloved – Display Cabinet

I was lucky enough to receive this fabulous Display Cabinet from a friend and could not wait to start Reloving it.  This piece is for my Living Room which is currently decorated in a Grey/Blush Pink theme.  I decided to paint it pink and cover the inside with some wallpaper I had leftover from my Dining Room. It has a lovely french design with blush pink and silver text – Paris and Love; perfect for this French Style Display Cabinet!

Just recently I was contacted by OPR, a PR Company in the UK, representing Rust-Oleum who said they loved the style of my Blog and wanted to send over some paint!  I was absolutely delighted when the package arrived a couple of days later and I could not believe how generous it was! I have only ever used the Rust-Oleum Chalky Finish Furniture paint on my pieces around my home so I cannot tell you how excited I was to receive this Blogger Mail of Dreams!!  So for my Display Cabinet, I chose the Satin Finish Furniture Paint in Pink Champagne.

Supplies Used for this Project:

Leftover Wallpaper

Rust-Oleum Satin Finish Furniture Paint in the colour Pink Champagne

Sugar Soap, Bowl & Sponge

Paint Brushes

Block Sander

Mod Podge

Screwdriver

Masking Tape

Plastic Card

Scissors and Paper Cutting Knife

Step 1 – I removed the door handles with a screwdriver, washed down with Sugar Soap to remove any dirt and grime and once dry put masking tape around the edges of the glass
Step 2 – I lightly sanded the whole Cabinet inside and out with a block sander
Step 3 – As there is no need for a Primer when using the Rust-Oleum Satin Finish Furniture Paint, I painted it straight onto the Cabinet starting with the inside
Step 4 – I continued with first coat on the outside and top of the Cabinet
Step 5 – I painted the second coat after 24 hours and a third coat 4 hours after the second coat
Step 6 – I applied some Mod Podge to the back of my Wall Paper Cut outs.  I would recommend using wallpaper paste as it’s much easier to push into place but I had none in the house!
Step 7 – I used an old ID card to smooth out the paper and then brushed another coat of Mod Podge on top to seal it
Step 8 – Once dry, I used my Paper Cutting Knife to remove any excess paper
Step 9 – I applied a coat of Mod Podge to the second sheet of wallpaper to secure the seams
Step 10 – I reinstated the original door handles and removed all the masking tape
And my favourite part – dressing her up!
Here she is in all her Reloved Glory in my Living Room!
