This is for the birds... cabinet Upcycle


I am very pleased with this little project.  I found this little cabinet at a yard sale and could not pass it up a great deal and real wood .  It was a well used item kids had colored on the inside and it had some water damage .  





I am sure it was intended to look like an old ice box.  

I broke out the Southern Honey  chalk paint and took care of the exterior

 I had a lone bird knob I picked up on the clearance rack at World Market.


And for the inside to avoid bleed through of markers and crayons and to avoid having add a sealer before painting (I am a LAZY crafter) ........





Modge Podge and a worn bird book with wonderful plates of art work in it, were my solution....
Drawers and Doors were also covered.....



I do like the out come except for the natural wood on the inside of the door....and it was painted an off white just did not grab another snap shot.  It was a much needed improvement!

A fun and quick project!  So the next time you walk up on a pretty little number with some kiddy art work on it think Modge Podge.......
