How-to: Color-Block a Curio Cabinet
The DIY experts at HGTV Magazine recreated this flea market find. Here’s how you can too.
Remove the shelves and set aside. Tape off the glass and the hinges with painter’s tape. Sand and prime the cabinet and shelves. Let dry.
Paint the parts of the cabinet and shelves that you want to be white. Let dry, then replace the shelves. Use delicate-surface painter’s tape to mark off the parts of the cabinet and shelves that you want to be black.
Remove the shelves again. Paint the right side of the shelves and cabinet black. Remove all the tape while the paint is still wet. Let dry.
Tape off the bottom of the cabinet where it meets the base with delicate-surface painter’s tape. Paint the base and legs black. Let dry. Replace the shelves.
