Hey Rags to Stitches friends! I am so excited to share my first DIY contributor post here with you today. This is one of my very favorite types of projects…re-purposing a thrift store find into something pretty and functional!
I picked up this bad boy dart board cabinet a few months ago for $2. I actually think it was really cool “as is” and originally bought it for my mister’s office to use as quirky man decor or even for some stress relieving dart games. Then one day I thought…a jewelry cabinet for me!! He didn’t mind. He is used to it 😉 Here is a quick before and after:
I started by removing all insides and giving the wood a light sanding. I then gave it a quick coat of paint that I had on hand. I used Martha Stewart’s Flagstone. *TIP: I love using the little tester paints for small projects like this. They are the perfect amount, easy to handle, and just a few bucks! I was going for a more aged appearance so I left some of the wood showing through and welcomed any imperfections. If you want a more polished look, a bit more sanding and a few coats of paint or spray paint is the way to go.
