Out with the RED and in with the AQUA

I can now add furniture refinisher to JR's list of talents. We had a red Chinese cabinet that just did not fit into our new study/sitting room color scheme and after receiving some bids to get the piece lacquered, we decided to paint it ourselves. We trepadaciously commited to an aqua color and were off to the paint shop to match the aqua in our new wallpaper. Thus began the transformation...


Priming. Painting. Polyurethaning.
Et voila!
There was some leftover wallpaper from the study, so we decided to line the interior with the print.
Our new liquor cabinet! I think we'll take a break now.
