Vintage Bead Board Primitive Cabinet Makeover

Some time ago, while searching on Craigslist, I happened to see this add for a vintage Bead board Primitive cabinet. After several attempts at emailing the seller about it, and getting no response from them, I decided to have hubby (aka Brian), give it a shot.....and so he did, and wouldn't you know it, they responded back to him within 10 minutes!! What??, lol ! Anyways, he happened to be working over in that town that next day, so he went there, checked it out, and brought it home, Yeah!!

So the first 2 photos are how it originally looked. The outside wasn't bad, just needed a bit of cleaning and painting. The inside REALLY needed some cleaning and painting...did not like the red shelves.




And below are the photos of it's transformation! For the outside, I painted it a VERY soft pale shabby pink


The inside was painted a pretty light shabby blue, and each shelf area was treated to a different Vintage wallpaper for the back.


Here it is all filled with some of my pretty Shabby chic linens and special Vintage treasures :) I am so happy with how it turned out! Even better than what I was imagining it could be!


My next thing I am keeping an eye out for on Craigslist is just the right shabby farmhouse table.

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting!
Until next time sweet friends !!

Hi Brenda, Your cabinet looks really awesome with your makeover. I thought I would do some reading while I listen to the wind and watch it snow. I like your pink and white Christmas Tree. My daughter made her white one a snowman Christmas Tree. Have a wonderful weekend. Stay safe and warm. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Thank you so much Shirley & Deb! We are getting snow here too, Shirley. Decided our youngest son should head back to college a day early, to avoid driving in this awful weather. He's attending Oakland University here in Michigan, on the other side of the state (3 hours drive!) So he's now safely over there :)
