NOT JUST ANY WORD WILL DO - apothecary cabinet


It was a nice looking 1930's china cabinet with a few issues.


Most of the issues dated the cabinet and made people look the other way, so I fixed it.


I did not care for the pointy designs that embelished this cabinet,
the 2 side panels and door were removed and the piece along the top.
This door will be saved for another project down the line.



Before starting a tear down like this
take your time to understand how each piece was originally attached.
This will go along way in getting a clean look when finished.


I replaced the whole front with a new set of doors making
it much easier to access the storage of the shelves.


Here is my first attempt at tackling the glass art and frosting,
FAIL!
Not the right font nor the right word.


Mistakes always offer a clearer direction.


The letters I used to create the reverved stencil are made of vinyl.
I make them myself the old fashioned away with a printer and a pair of scissors.
No fancy Silhouette machines here!
I created the arched effect in Word Art and mimic the arch shape with green tape for the next step.


I used Martha Steward Craft Paints in a color called WEDDING CAKE and sprayed it with my paint
 gun. They are available at Michaels and it adheres to multi surfaces including glass and is available
 in any color you can imagine.
The graphic is available here:
