A Little Makeover...A Gun Cabinet Turned Kitchen Hutch
I bought this for only $35.00 at DI awhile back. You have to love having a vision for old things!
How I Did It
First I stripped the whole piece of all the lacquer and stain it already had on it by using my Favorite stripping gel by Citristrip which you can use indoors.
Then I proceeded with my Paint Like A Pro Furniture Painting and antiquing techniques. I used the same color paint, stain, General Finishes glaze, and General Finishes Top Coat that I used for my dining room table since I wanted them to match and look somewhat like a set. Cut a couple boards to be used as shelves, slapped on some bottom trim, backed it with bead-board and it was looking pretty good.
Last but not least I found a cute little old-fashion latch at Lowe's to finish off my gun cabinet transformation. I am afraid it will always be referred to as the "gun cabinet", but that is exactly what I love about my house and the things in it.
