Diane at A Picture is Worth 1000 Words is sponsoring Trash to Treasure blog day. She invited anyone who would share their favorite trash item turned into a treasure! Although I posted a picture of these cabinets already this week, I'll have to say this is my favorite "trash" item. It's true that a friend of mine got all the cabinets from a house that had been partially burned and had been vacant for quite awhile. She used many of the cabinets in her home (painted them black) and they are beautiful. She gave me these and I painted them black first and then red over the black. Someone had asked me the color red. It is Sherwin Williams Cherry Tomato. I think the black underneath gives it a different color than the true Cherry Tomato. After I painted them red I sanded the edges some so black would show and they looked even older. The inserts to the cabinet doors were missing so I put the chicken wire and made the curtains. You can see my detergents, etc. through the chicken wire but THIS IS IN MY LAUNDRY ROOM. You should have seen it before!!!!
