To see out 2017 I’m sharing my final project for the year! It was a close call for this to be an uncompleted project on my list for a very up and down year! But somehow from somewhere, I found the kick in the butt I needed to complete this very scratched and outdated corner unit on Christmas Eve. The corner unit has been a part of the family for some time. You can probably tell because it’s from back when TV’s used to fit into the cabinet. So I toyed with giving it away but just love the glass doors too much to part with it. Sharing our Farmhouse Corner Unit Makeover.

Step 3 – Start painting! This corner unit took 3 coats to achieveΒ this chippy look. Make sure that each coat is completely dry before moving onto the next coat.

Step 5 – The shelf once where the DVD player used to sit was super hard to paint. So using some book pages and mod podge I stuck them to the shelf instead to give a nice Vintage Farmhouse look.
