Drexel Faux Bamboo China Cabinet: Gray and Gold Glam
This makeover is so me.
It was a great price at the thrift store, so even though it was monstrously heavy, I could see it finished in my mind, so it came home with me. This is what it looked like:
Very brown. Very dull. Only one flaw--the exposed wood under the chipped carving on the bottom left door--an easy fix.
Prep was time consuming, though. All the glass panels had to come out, piece entirely sanded--all the grooves and carvings, inside and out. I sprayed the beautiful gray, then hand painted all the gold accents, and then sprayed a nice glossy finish. Replacing the cleaned glass panels meant making new painted wood stops, mitred and tacked, for each panel inside to replace the old brown rubber stops.
