Hello Everyone! The other day while I was at my son and daughter-in-law’s place, she mentioned that she wanted to get rid of this trash can cabinet that she received as a Christmas gift about 10 years ago.
Being the DIY’er that I am, I told her that I would take it home and see what I could do with it. Instead of painting it, I decided that I would re-stain it. I used Ebony Minwax Wood Finish Stain on the entire piece and added hardware to it.
I wasn’t sure if I would have to sand the entire piece in order for the stain to take. But it didn’t need it. I applied two coats of the stain to get the dark cover that I was aiming for.
I have to say, this has been one of the easiest furniture make-overs I have done thus far…no sanding, no priming, no painting and no waxing.
I wonder if she will still want to get rid of it now since it seems to fit in with the other pieces of furniture that I have transformed in her country kitchen. I refinished a china cabinet back in February which you can read about here and a replica antique ice box here.
As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful day!
