A couple months ago I found this cabinet at Salvation Army.
I think it was a potato/onion bin? I'm not really sure, but whatever it was, it's clearly very outdated. The faux stain glass inserts in the doors are plastic. Those were the first things to go!
I knew basically what I had planned for the cabinet, but I was stuck on what to do to that blank middle door. Until I found this on Pinterest!
And bonus - it's already reversed for you!!
So now that I had a complete plan, I got to work and here's how the cabinet looks now!!
I painted it in my favorite antique white, added some rusty chicken wire, sanded and restained the top, and added the French graphic using this mod podge image transfer method. I think it looks so pretty!
I just love the rusty chicken wire!!
I sanded over the graphic a bit to give it a nice worn look.

you don’t mind that I’ve reposted it at my vintage post
gallery, “The Vintage Post Office”. It’s like a reverse
show and tell link up. Please let me know if I you aren’t
happy with that, I can always remove it for you. But I’m
really hoping you won‘t mind as all the posts will be a
gallery of wonderful vintage items.
Thank you so much, Victoria Lavender
