Hey there! This week I finally finished up a project that has been in the works way too long, but the important thing is I did finish it.
I refinished, and restyled, a wine cabinet. My inspiration for this makeover comes from Restoration Hardware. I am totally in love with their Zinc collection. This piece in particular.
I love this look on so many levels. It’s industrial, sleek and chic all at the same time.
This is the before.
This is what it looks like now.
It really wasn’t that difficult just time-consuming. I started by spot spraying it with Krylon Outdoors Black Metallic Finish spray paint.
Then I spot sprayed it with Krylon Outdoors Silver Hammered Metal Finish spray paint.

Then I painted the nailhead trim with Rub n Buff in Pewter to give it an aged look.
To apply the nailhead trim I simply measured the four sides of the front then cut the trim into four pieces. The trim is so easy to apply. I found the best way to do it is to hold the individual nailheads with pliers in order to hammer them in. And you will definitely need a mallet rather than a hammer.
Once that was done I had to apply the feet. This is much easier if you use straight top plates. They look like this.
So I basically just decided where I wanted each foot to go then measured for the same spot at each corner and marked each one with a sharpie.
Then I used the power drill to attach each plate and foot.
Now I just need to fill it up! 😉 So what do you think of Restoration Hardware? Has it ever inspired you to refinish something?
