Farmhouse Cabinet DIY


Before and After

Before and After

Objective: To renovate my own display cabinet with inspiration from

Result: As pictured.

Cabinet stripped down, backboard taken off. Inserts on doors and side pieces taken out and replaced with mouse and snake proof wire.
New backboard put in with country feel.
All wood and wire painted with Annie Sloane pure white chalk paint.
New wood pelmet put on top of cabinet for character.
New ceramic door knobs from Anthropologie USA.

I left the shelving as it was – ply – in all its glory with splits and cracks. I felt it had character and its own story to tell and loved that about it.

I was so happy with the finished product. Finally a goal that I achieved pretty much as I imagined.

  3. This is so pretty! One question, what are mouse and snake proof wire?


  4. Oh I so love how the cabinet turned out 😀 !!! Awesome!!! I was first a bit startled about the snake-proof-wire^^ It must be an every day thought over where you live 🙂 You surely made it look absolutely gorgeous, well done ❤
