My mission in upcycling is to leave at least some portion of the item in it's vintage state. And you will probably notice I have a thing for stripes and stenciling numbers. I have two more weekends before The Summer Market to build up this inventory (but will happily sell it to before then, of course.)
This two piece cabinet was originally covered in pealing mint green paint that had to be stripped and sanded down to bare wood. The base of both the bottom and top units was painted with Behr "Willow Grove" Eggshell Enamel. The drawers, cutting boards and glass doors were stained MinWax "Dark Walnut".
