Stereo cabinet turned storage

insidestereocabinetbeforestereocabinetcompleteafterACK! I can’t find any pictures of this stereo cabinet as it appeared originally… but trust me, it needed help!  Someone had tried refinishing it and, well, it didn’t work.  The interior was painted a strange Pepto Bismol pink color (which looks white in this picture) and the exterior was stained — over VARNISH — a red-er color stain.  I’m sure the owner had good intentions, but please don’t try to stain over varnish people! You will never match the original varnish color!! I pulled out the strips of wood on the bottom, originally meant for record storage, and repainted the inside blue.

Had some extra fabric left over from a previous project, so used this to cover the inside shelf all the way around. Modge Podge is my best friend for covering wood with fabric.   While the doors were off, painted them with a super fun Rose Metallic paint that I hadn’t tried, Buttercream by @JoAnn_Stores.  I’m sad because I really like but have heard that JoAnn’s is discontinuing the Buttercream line 🙁  Then finished this lovely off with knobs from @HobbyLobby; now I’m officially a #knobsnob!!!  I named this project Two/Too Fly Blue because two flies managed to get stuck in the paint on the doors! Oh how I miss the warm weather… even the pesky flies.
