Your Ex's China Cabinet No More!

By Keri

I bought this china cabinet on line in about 30 sec from a guy who told me it was in "great shape", it was his ex-girlfriends and it had to go today. Price paid......$10!  What could I possibly be out if it was totally useless when I got to his house to see it.  It smelled like an ashtray and was far from great shape.  It was covered in 10 years of dust, grime and dead flower petals.  I scrubbed, scrubbed and rescrubbed!!  Took the backing off and threw it away to loose some of the smoke smell.  Removed all the glass, sanded and painted in a custom tinted chalk paint off of Amazon and sealed in 3 coats of General Finishes satin water based clear coat.  I bought new backer board that I covered in peel and stick wall paper from Lowe's.  Cleaned all the glass 6x over and put it all back together.  The new knobs/ handles are from Menard's.  I'm pretty sure his ex wants her china cabinet back.
