Radio Cabinet Makeover!

I love my old fashion radio stand, it is no longer a radio cabinet though I just use it for storage, and decoration.  Isn't it cute?

 I purchased it, at a local thrift store called thrift city.

This little cabinet is in my front little sitting room.

I got this adorable breakfast tray along with the bird house just the other night at Goodwill. 

 The bird is off my Christmas tree, I decided he was way too cute and should be out all year long.

My girls are so cute!

It's hard to tell in photo's, but I did distress the edges of the cabinet after I painted it white. I used a product called rub n buff the color is called "patina". When you look at this color online it looks super bright blue, which I was nervous about, when I ordered it I thought it was going to be way to bright and too blue, but omgosh it is so perfect and its not even that blue its very green-blue pretty much exactly the color I use as a accent color in alot of my home, I am so happy with it.

 I buy rub n buff on Ebay, its very inexpensive.

Very happy with the way it turned out I feel this room is so much brighter and cheerful now that it is white instead of the dark.
Home sweet home.
