Awesome cabinet makeover before-after photos | his DIY craft project was visited more than others in the linky parties I used to have on this blog: a hand-painted cabinet makeover.

A recycled music cabinet – Before and After

Paul and Cathy from ‘One Creative Couple’ found this beauty of a flee-market find. It is a vintage music cabinet to store sheet music. It me it could store many other items, but that’s an aside story.

How to upcycle an old cabinet – the foundation steps;

Cathy had a vision to refinish as Vintage French.  First they added a two tone color scheme, French Blue and Creme, to the entire cabinet. Paul created a cartouche on the main door and surround it with French looking scrolls. Scrolls frame a painting so well.


Then, use your best French painting skills to paint on the flower vignette. If you want, eye some old French paintings for ideas and compositions. Or, if this is more your think, decoupage the flower vignette.

This ‘after’- photo shows the gorgeous front-panel with romantic ‘French’ flowers in a duo-toned cabinet.

The final result!

I think Paul and Cathy’s project was very successful.

This After-picture shows what awesome results one can have by upcycling old vintage music cabinets.

Originality matters .
