Like many of you, I love the idea of scouting for Flea Market finds and attempting to turn them into something inspiring. I ran across this simple cabinet recently and immediately knew that, for $2.00, it had potential.
I painted a wood applique and used it to cover the engraved writing. Wood appliques can be found in the lumber section of home improvement stores such as Lowes. The amethyst glass cabinet knob was another find from Lowes. I used patterned paper scraps to create a patchwork background, unifying the green and amethyst color scheme.
Complete instructions with paint colors, distressing techniques, etc. can be found in the June 2010 issue of Crafts n Things magazine.
