Pistachio Cabinet

As I promised...One more Furniture up-date...
I found this baby at the GW for only $8.00...which is hard to believe because I think their prices have gotten outrages for furniture!!

OK...This piece is definitely not antique but it was super clean and really, only needed handles for it's doors....

Which I found at World Market for $3.99 each....Together the two of them were the same price I paid for the cabinet...:)

I can't stand those cheap "cardboard backs" in new pieces these days !!  So...I had my hubby pick up some beadboard from Home Depot.  (By the way he was ecstatic and surprised..or maybe the other way around when I said they would cut it for him!!!)

I was in a lazy mood and wanted this job done quickly so I zipped on down to my favorite place for spray paint (Walmart) and picked up a can of by Krylon in Pistachio...Oh do I LOVE this color!!!
After about 4 light coats, we glued and nailed it to the back...

What an easy Makeover and the whole thing cost me only about $30.00.

Well...Thanks for stopping by and as usual I will be linking up to many of the parties on my side bar...
Have a Great Day!!
