Old Stereo Cabinet turned Rustic

Saturday, March 9, 2019

Welcome back!  I hope you are enjoying my content and posts so far, I know I am having a blast writing them!

Our next furniture flip project was this old stereo cabinet we found at the Goodwill for just $20, and it actually works!  By we, I mean my fiancé found it and just had to have it because he is an impulse buyer as well as huge vinyl lover, but thank god for that because it was so worth it!

This is what the finished piece looks like and it looks AMAZING!  It doesn't even look like the same piece.

Here is what the piece looked like right after we brought it home.  Cute, but not exactly our style.

To start off the project as always, I scrub and scrub and scrub to get this thing clean.  Next up, I removed the side doors where the speakers are and I also removed all he hardware because I wasn't exactly loving the style of them.

I patched the holes where all the screws were and sanded the wood filler down, and I was ready to prime!

I bought a primer that prevents bleed through as well as works over shiny surfaces, and I wasn't a huge fan of it because it dried clear rather than white, but it worked and got the job done!  I let that dry for a full 24 hours and then it was time to paint!

I used this chalk style paint in white, and painted about 4 coats on this bad boy.  I feel if my primer would have dried white I wouldn't have had to do so many coats but it still had an amazing finish and was a great paint to try out!

I sanded lightly in between each coat and once the final coat of paint was applied I let it dry for a full 24 hours before the final step.  After it was completely dry I began distressing it with a medium grit sandpaper.  I distressed all the edges and places where it would typically get the most wear and then I was done! I decided not to add any hardware back on since the middle portion weren't functional cabinets and I still love the way it looks!

This piece was such a steal and I am so happy we added it to our collection! I can't wait to play some vinyls on this beauty😍
