Cabinet Makeover

This cabinet brings back a lot of good memories.  For most of my life it was in my grandparents house, housing a few photo albums.  When I would visit, there was one small album that had several pictures of me from when I was a little girl, so I would go get it and flip through it.
When my grandparents both passed away, I got the little cabinet. I wanted to paint it, but sentimentally, just couldn't...until a few weeks ago.  I didn't treat it (like maybe it should have been), but just painted it with a black acrylic paint.  When I opened the cabinet, it was the sweetest smell - the smell of my grandparents house! So, I quickly decided to leave the inside gold :).
It turned out very nice!  And now I'll be using the cabinet in a more visible place in our living room.  I think I might even put that photo album back in there.....just for sentimental reasons.  But one thing is for sure. The inside smell will always bring back great memories!

HA - that's funny that it still has the "smell."
