Oh my my, hello blue beauty. 🙋🏽♀️💙 Wanna hear a story?
Here we go..... This piece didn’t always look this hip. 💁🏽♀️
In its past life this was actually an old china cabinet from the 50’s and it sat in my grandparents dining room.
Well long story a little bit shorter, my grandparents got divorced after 32 years of marriage and it was given to my mom.
The China cabinet sat in our formal dining room my entire life until my parents moved to a little island in south Florida where my mom decided that she really didn’t need or want the China cabinet.
It’s safe to say that the emotional attachment to the piece probably went out the window when my grandparents got divorced.
So my mom decided to get rid of the piece because they were moving and downsizing.
Well I decided I’d take the China cabinet to my house, refinish it and sell it for top dollar. 😂 But life was busy and it sat in my garage for months until I decided that I actually hated the top part with the glass doors and I really debated just throwing it in the dump.
One day I was out in the garage working on other pieces and noticed l could take the top part off, and I had an epiphany! I thought “ hey I could turn this into a console table and sell it or use it in my stagings.” Welllll I took the top off and threw it in the dump and then It sat in my garage for another 6 months. Until one day I finally decided to painted it #halenavy by #benjaminmoore. ( this is a long story 🤦🏽♀️) Anyways... it then sat for another 6 months after I painted it and then I decided heyyy let’s take those doors off! (the doors were located where the records are now) FINALLY my lovely bf and I decided that if I could stop procrastinating and finish it we would use it for our records and sooooo I finished it after a couple more months of him nagging me. 😂
We also added casters on the bottom to make it easier to move around when I vacuum 3 times a week from all the fur baby hair. 😻🐶... and it just looks cooler along with the new beautiful brushed gold hardware from @houzz
I promise I’m done now. HAPPY MONDAY! 😊
