WHAT TO DO WITH THAT FRENCH CLASSIC - stereo cabinet

 
Here is what you can do with that old French provincial stereo cabinet grandma doesn't want anymore, but this one needs some carpentry skills.
 

 
The center section is a foam panel and fixed in place, but the top opens up to get to that storage area. I however went all the way and cut the middle panel in two and hinged them to open.
 



I painted the entire unit with white enamel spray paint. Once thoroughly dry the cabinet was dry
brushed with a dark walnut stain. The stain moves around easily on smooth enamel paint, letting
 you decide where it should go and stay. This was a great opportunity to use an oil based paint to
 show you how easy it would be to simply add stain over top of an existing paint job to achieve a
 new look yet not redoing the entire piece.
 

The finish needs time to cure before using it and I distressed the edges.



Here is the BEFORE & AFTER
