Found this ripped apart wine cabinet at a Goodwill store recently and instantly wanted it. (That’s how I am about most pieces that are falling apart and need a new paint job) $7 is what is cost me to bring it home. It took a lot of tedious work to clean this up and make it new again. Here’s how it got to the final result (picture at end of post) First thing was taking off those mostly broken apart bottom doors. I love how the wine racks look and the wood inside was flawless- so why not show it off!

Next, I pulled out the two shelves that were inside the cabinet and starting sanding them down.

Time to use one of my favorite “furniture helpers.” Minwax Stainable Wood Filler! LOVE this stuff. It has saved so many pieces of furniture over the years- and did I mention, it’s stainable?!

Once you’ve put the wood filler on, scrap it into the spots you need filled and let it dry and sit for about a half hour (with today’s 90 degree heat – it took about 10 minutes).

Finally, it’s time to paint! For this piece I used a Sherwin Williams color called Indigo Batik.

Side note: This will also be the new color of the exterior of our home this Fall.
