I bought these two cabinets at our local "Angels of Hope" thrift store. The Sacred Heart Shrine was made from a 1980's spice cabinet. The glass tiles around the top and bottom where found at the same store. The Red Shrine was a funky Christmas ornament holder/cabinet. I free handed the paint added some Loteria Cards and a leftover embroidery I had done a few months ago which turned out wrong. *( I added some fabric paint and now it looks great ). I spent a total of $4.50 and about 10 hours of elbow grease.
