Take an old, dirty cupboard, and let the creative juices flow~~
We were given this old cupboard by our neighbour, cuz they were cleaning out, and my family never used it. And i have always had an obsession with Japan and especially cherry blossoms, so i decided i would give it a little makeover...

I am an amateur at painting,so bare with me..

    Step 2

    So first, i got out the sand paper and gave it a quick sand, and then i got the duster and cloth with some all purpose cleaner, and went to town!

    ( this pic is after i did all that)

    Step 3

    Next, i waited for the all purpose or any wetness to dry, and started on the base coat, here's where all the well-needed patience comes in, unlucky for me, i have none. I did 2 coats of base, with about 30 mins in between, i painted shelves too, because i am painting those as well.

    P.S - Make sure you use newspaper or something to keep paint from going everywhere

    Step 4

    If your a gifted painter ( unlike me) then this'll be easy peasy, but i took about 2 hours for this part..
    first i took a fuschia and mixed it with lots of white, i did 3 coats cuz it's acrylic (i know you should'nt paint with acrylic but what the hey), Then i outlined the frame in a darker colour.

    Step 5

    The top of my cupboard was falling off, so i re-attached that in the mean-time with some nails and a hammer. Anyways, once the paint has dried, and your all relaxed, you can start painting the cherry blossoms. Im a first-time painter so they aren't perfect, lol.

    I just went along with the pic in my head, but you can go on the net and find some that you like..

  • Step 6

    And voila, your done!
    I use mine to store my sewing machine and kit in.

    Hope you like...

I tried to do something similar with my jewelry box, but failed miserably. I think I'll try again, your version looks amazing!
