Mimi's Bedroom {Part ONE}

Hello Lovelies!




I believe you know by now that  for the last few weeks I've been working having fun on putting together my little girl's bedroom.
I introduce to you Miss Mimi...
{ love the shoes...huge but way cute}



Well she is the INSPIRATION behind the journey of transforming this
dark black curio cabinet into the sweetest piece of furniture I have ever worked on...

Here is a picture of the before...
{so NOT Mimi}
{How do you like my leg's reflection on the glass?}
The truth is that in my opinion this curio had a lot of character
but
my Mimi's opinion was different... she thought there was just not enough ...
PINK on it.
So here is what I did to fix the problem...

1st:
I "unassembled" {is that even a word?} the main parts of the curio:
doors, glass panels and  hardware...all out!


2nd:
I primed the curio and after it dried {I dislike waiting}  I spray painted it in a light  ivory color.

3rd:
You may be wondering why I didn't paint the entire thing...
and where is the pink?
Well I found this super cute vinyl shelf paper at Michaels...
that I used to cover the unpainted areas.
Don't you love the colors?
So chic!


4th:
I spray painted in silver the hinges and replaced the knobs with some
fabulous new ones that I found at Home-Goods months ago...
They are delicious!


...And then before I knew it I was done!




This is how you do a makeover Mimi's style!
I love the pink background!

Pretty amazing what a little of imagination
and a bit of paint can do!
 ...

It is definitely the sweetest little cabinet i have ever seen. I love how soft the colors are. It is just precious. Looking at you would NEVER have imagined it black. It was definitely meant to be ivory. You did a fantastic job! That shelf paper is amazing! What an impact.
