Mid Century Modern Before and After

Last week I found a cabinet for free and saw that it had some potential under the beat up ugly white paint job to possibly be a Mid Century style project.

From the inside I could see that it was mostly made of some kind of wood, but it was pretty beat up, so I figured I could only salvage the drawer front and paint the rest of it. The best part, the bottom of the cabinet had brackets attached for legs!

Check out the ugly before photos:

Here’s what it took to give this white box a new life:
– Sanding all over
– Sanding off all the paint on the drawer
– 2 coats of primer
– 2 coats of high-gloss enamel paint from Benjamin Moore – Tropicana Cabana + Snowfall White
– Attached 6″ Mid Century Modern style wood & metal legs from Home Depot
– 2 coats of tung oil (on the drawer and legs only)

    1. Hi Rhonda

      It’s already sold. My pieces usually sell soon after they are finished. I have 2 pieces that are almost done. If you are local (Vancouver, Canada) then you’re welcome to check them out. Just send me an email via my contact page. Thanks!

  1. Such a beautiful makeover! I love the unexpected pop of color and the sleek drawer handle — where did you find that hardware?
