We bought this little record cabinet cheap at a junk store recently.  The bottom was natural wood, but we thought it would look more up-to-date with a painted finish.  We hoped to take it out of its l970s misery.  Sorry, no 'before' picture.
 Bob refinished the cherry top, and gave the bottom a painted and glazed finish.
 It turned out nice, we think.
Evidently, someone else did, too.  It sold within 15 minutes of being delivered to the consignment store!

OK, it's the first day of summer - now can we have Fall & Winter?  In arid Colorado, it is hot, dry, buggy, windy and the forest fires are raging.  So many homes have been lost; please pray for those people in harm's way.

I'm joining the following parties -- please go by these blogs for inspiration galore.

Very good looking piece! And I agree about the heat and the bugs! The haze comes all the way out here and the other evening the air even smelled smoky.♥♫

You made it a beautiful piece. I'm always amazed what paint does for furniture. I'm glad you were immediately rewarded! The fires are terrible. Folks have lost homes in NM too. I'm used to the heat, but I wouldn't want to spend the midday out in it. You left me an awful nice comment. Thanks so much.

Nice! I find that pieces of this size are quick sells becvause they don't take up much floor space but offer decent storage. COngrats!
