No I did not lose my mind, there is always method to the madness. Gutted this cabinet and made new sized drawers to suit my needs. Once done we had this in place.

So I am looking at my nicely painted cabinet and wondering how long before it inevitably gets paint on it by mistake. Rather than be upset later I decided to embrace the paint dripping on it, and in fact did just that. Grabbed some brushes and slathered all around every which way. Now who cares if it gets a drip, or a brush, or overspray? Just adds to the character. You cannot miss that this is indeed the paint cabinet. It is shall we say Original, or a real conversation starter? Either way exotic as the paint job is the inside is well laid out to suit my current needs. All drawer slides are 22 inch ball bearing.

Enjoy, be inspired or at the very least have a good laugh.

Typical woman job… can’t make your mind up to what colour.

Don’r shoot me for that PinC statement… I have heaps of unopened cans of paint cause the missus refuses to finalise on colours… after purchase.

My neighbor got a good laugh. His wife is a artist and thought it was great. A self portrait of my inner soul she said.

Not to sure about that.

No mistaking that as the paint storage cabinet! I like your idea of pre-distressing it 8^)

You could have saved yourself some time and the cost of the paints if you just left it in the spray paint aisle for a day at you local Walmart…

As many times as I tell people Pizza, beer, and cabbage rolls just don’t mix. Some never learn…....

Do you feel better afterward? It’s usually a good idea to let it all go. :-)

It has a sort of Jackson Pollock motif to it.

I love to paint too… lack of talent has never embarrased me.

Or maybe a paint storage cabinet that you’ve lost the keys to…
