Painted Book Cabinet

Carrie from Hooked on Decorating picked up this cabinet for free on Kijiji (aka eBay Classifieds) last summer. It was originally used as a small china cabinet, but Carrie planned to mix things up and turn it into a safe house for her vintage books and other treasures.

Carrie knew exactly what this baby needed to really shine. She says, “With some new
hardware, moulding, wooden appliques, scrapbook paper, and cream paint, this cabinet was transformed into my shabby chic style book cabinet.” Isn’t she a beaut now?
