Vintage Display Curio Updated

curio update beforeI picked up an old display curio at an antique show not too long ago. It has potential, so I put it in my booth as I found it. But after a couple of weeks there, it just didn’t look like it fit in to my “style”, so it came home for an update.

The curio originally had a mirror in the door.  I unscrewed the hinges to remove the door, and replaced the mirror with chicken wire.

After a light sanding of the entire curio, I painted the piece with left over paint from my “library” room. It’s called “Silver Mist” by Sherwin Williams.

The back of the curio was cover with seagrass look wallpaper I already had. (Picked up for $2.00 at Habitat Restore.)

I added a new door knob I had in my stash of hardware.

I think it looks more “sellable” now. It could be used in a kitchen, or bathroom, or a craft room for supplies. 🙂 Back to the booth it goes!
