Many, many years ago, my in-laws gave me a corner cabinet. It sat in the eating area of our old house and when we moved here, I hurriedly shoved it in a corner in the family room.
I love the look of built in corner cabinets in the dining rooms of old houses, but I knew I'd never get Brian to build me one.
So, I used what I had to try to get a similar look.
I took the corner cabinet and sanded that sucker down like my life depended on it.
I was a little sad because 10 years ago I had refinished it in a cherry stain to match the old house and it really was pretty.
C'est la vie....
I painted it the same color as the bottom of the walls and dresser/buffet - Camembert (Behr).
The I painted the hinges (oil rubbed bronze) and got some plain oil rubbed bronze knobs for it.
I just put some of my transferware in there (for now) and I'd love to get some lights in there - I have an idea but Brian cringes every time I say "Honey, I've been thinking, and ......" because he knows it's just going to be more work for him and I've had him doing some other projects lately.
I'll give him a break for a few
So, there you have it. It's not a perfect look, but it gives me storage and fits in there nicely.
And we installed the new front door this weekend - YAY!!!!!
