Metamorphosis Monday!!

Welcome, this my first Metamorphosis Monday. I'm not quite done with my project, but I wanted to join so here it is. Please visit Between Naps on the Porch to see everyone!!

I bought a cabinet, for more storage and to
use as a bar. Most people would like it just
as it was but not me, I had to change it
totally. I was trying to match the rest of
my Morning Room (breakfast nook, in the
rest of the country)
Here it is before, notice one stripe of
green paint on side that I was testing.
I painted the cabinet, cream like my welsh
cabinet. I use oil paint.
I bought some great green glass knobs, that I
I'm going to mirror the back of the cabinet, as
soon as I get to the hardward store with measurements,
I can cut my own glass, as i do stained glass. Where you
see black will be mirror.
This is the top, used as a bar.
As you can see, its starting to fit right in with my
welsh cabinet. I hope it have it done by next week.
Please be sure to link back to the host blog,
Between Naps on the Porch, so your fellow bloggers
who are participating today, will get lots of visits, as well.

Love how a fresh coat of paint can suddenly breathe new life into something! I would love to see two small topiary trees on top to enhance the lovely green - or two cups full of lily of the valley flowers.

Hi Gina,
Thank you for visiting my site. I wanted to say hello, and have a look a around yours. Thank you for signing on as a follower I did the same; it is great to meet new friends.
This is a neat project, love those glass knobs. I agree adding the mirror to the cabinet will be perfect.
Have a wonderful day... Cathy

What an incredible makeover Kate! I love what you did and it looks grand with your Welsh cabinet now. They look like they've always been together! Love your posts!

Hugs, Sherry

PS No one can EVER have too many topiaries!!

I am loving your blog, so eye candy!

I love this cabinet, in either black or white. What you have done with it is, extraordinary. You've made it a treasured piece.
