Finally something to share that I haven't painted white. I like neutral furniture as it is timeless but my parents had this little display cabinet which was itching to be made into something more interesting and special.
Before ( technically this is after the first coat of primer but I forgot to take a photo at the start. It was actually a dark black wood.)
So the colour choice was turquoise. I love the colour and choose it as I had some old thrifted wallpaper it would look amazing with. While I'm not 100% sure where to put it, it looks great with a Marilyn Monroe pop art piece I picked up in Vietnam and a wooden box I thrifted (and gave a coat of the same turquoise paint to). I am definitely thinking of using these items when I get around to decorating the lounge/ dining room. Of course I need to paint the walls a crisp white first and lose the apricot walls that currently uninspiring me and don't work with many colours at all.
The display cabinet needed a coat of primer and then two coats of turquoise paint. When finished I removed the shelves and attached wallpaper to the back. It looks even better than I thought it would and I love how unique it is.

And now for a side by side photo to show the big change.
It's perfect to display pretty things and I want it to end up a little like this gorgeous turquoise cabinet. I think I'll be searching thrift stores for little birds and deers, after all can a house have too many deers and birds?
For now I'll enjoy this cute new piece of furniture and dream up where it should be mounted :-)
