This is my cabinet that I got for my seventh birthday, and in the seven years that has passed after that, I was losing love for it quite quickly...so I revamped it with some paint and fabric...and well here it is...

You definitely have given this cabinet a new life.  I know how difficult it is to paint all those crevices, but your hard has paid off, it looks great!

I don't like cabinets because I don't like cleaning, but if I see yours, I want one  Smiley It's really cute!

We all make mistakes, and then when you've made enough, they call it experience.
