This is a mid-century cabinet that my Dad made. It has traveled many roads in its life, most recently with my niece's family. When I saw the cabinet at her house, I told her if she ever wanted to part with it, I would be happy to take it off her hands. The next time I saw her, she hauled the cabinet out of her SUV and into my kitchen.
I had several ideas for refurbishing the cabinet. This is its latest reincarnation. How did I do it? Acrylic paint. No sanding no stripping, no nothing. I just started to paint. After the paint dried, I topped the creation off with a couple layers of wax and buffed it lightly. That's it.
