Restoring a China Cabinet

By Cedar | April 17, 2014

Pardon the radio silence around here this week. Want to hear my excuse for neglecting this space? Well, I have been working hard on this monster of a job. Last week I found this horrendously painted china cabinet for a steal in the thrift store and I took it upon myself to save it (or restore it, depending on how you look at it).

Isn’t that bad? Russ was sweet enough to spend last weekend scraping the paint off with chemicals. My spare time throughout the week has been spent out on the patio sanding, sanding, and more sanding. I am only about 1/3 of the way done, but I hope to be finished and ready to stain at the end of the weekend.

Stay tuned to see the finished product. Oh, and I promise a more active week around here next week!
