We took this old cabinet and was going to do a sand and re stain for a customer, then we found it was laminate and had to go a different road. The customer decided on this really cool color, “Silver Cloud” and we made a shelf in the middle and added some lights. The pain was difficult to apply (The pearl in it would play with your eye’s) but the customer was happy and so were we.

Todd, the result is absolutely beautiful. I love those pearly colours. Great restoration and the addition of the lights really tops it off.
Congratulations on a great job.
Thank you for showing.

Great job on this piece … I would have cringed at painting over all of that beautiful veneer … but that’s just me.
Your final product looks really nice.

Thank again every one, I am not a fan of painting wood, but that’s what the customer wanted and Buster I will be at your house next week so you can helping touch up my painting skills LOL. The lights I got at Wal-mart, there those tap lights that are batter operated LED’s. Some industrial strength Velcro and it works like a charm and makes batter replacement a snap. Thanks again every one.
