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.
