Cabinet Makeover

Hello everyone!
You may recall that I  had a cabinet in my kitchen with a rooster and flowers painted on it. When I first spotted it, I was smitten!  Well lately, since I've been changing the look of my home, I'm not so smitten anymore.  I wanted to update it, so I painted over it using the same grey paint I used elsewhere in my home. I also used a dark wax to age it some more and protect the top.  Can you tell I really like that color? 

Here is what it looks like now.


Here is what it once looked like.



I enjoyed it with the rooster on it for years.  I used to decorate with roosters A LOT!  Now.....this one was the last to fly the coop! 

Of course, with new paint, came some more redecorating.  I added some Christmas decor to the top of the cabinet.



I changed my centerpiece on the table too.  A simple lantern with a candle and greenery fit the bill!


I ended up hanging my bread boards up on the wall in place of some pictures.  They got a little Christmas greenery added to them as well.



My dog's stocking got some greenery too and moved over to the towel bar. 


  I'll be wrapping and baking later this week.  I'm looking forward to the smell of cookies in the oven and pretty packages under the tree!

Thanks for stopping by!

At an estate sale today, I saw a white ceramic cow head that I think you used for a towel rack. I told my daughter you and Kim would love it. Went back to get it from another room and it was gone! I love your decorating style. Makes me feel so at home here. Menopause? I've met some that didn't feel a thing. Others, like me, knocks them for a loop. Honey, be afraid...

That is a nice change. I know you are weeding out the roos. Funny how our taste changes over time and what we once loved needs to leave the house. Love the added Christmas decor.

Jennifer @ Town and Country Living said...

Your cabinet redo looks great! Are those burlap curtains I see hanging on the window?

Robin said...

It's so pretty now Kelly. I love the whole room. Crazy about the cow print over the cabinet - what a great addition to the room.

I love the cabinet makeover. I really love the idea you came up with for a candle holder with the strapping and keys held on by jute. Great! :)
