Ikat Storage Cabinet Makeover

Ikat Storage Cabinet Makeover- Delicious And DIYSo I had been on a mission for quiet some time now to find a storage cabinet that had plain front doors, no design or carvings or anything of that sort. It just had to be plain and simple because I wanted to completely stencil the piece from head to toe. Luck was on my side because I ended up getting my hands on this fella.

It was in a pretty decent condition but had few scratches at the bottom and some on top. The doors weren’t closing completely and the knobs were just dangling. But everything was going to be fixed and it was perfect for what I had in mind.

Here is the before shot.

I wanted a really bright and bold Pattern on the front doors of the cabinet and when I received my Cutting Edge Stencil it was like a match made in heaven. It was perfect for this sad little piece. I chose the Ikat Samarkand Stencil because firstly i have an undying love for anything Ikat and Secondly the pattern is really forgiving even if you mess up, it ends up making it even more prettier, in my opinion 😉

The color I chose to paint the entire storage cabinet was with Velvet Finishes Exotic. Its this beautiful Coral color and since I wanted this cabinet to be really bright, Exotic was the way to go.

So as usual to save up on time I loaded up my HomeRight Finish Max Sprayer and started spraying away.

The sprayer was amazing for this cabinet because I was done within minutes. The cabinet needed two coats too fully cover the brown.

For that I used Velvet Finishes Exotic which is this delicious blue and looks perfect in contrast with the coral.
