HOW I TRANSFORMED THIS SALVAGED VINTAGE RADIO CABINET WITH A BRIGHT AND BOLD COLOR COMBO!
Hi sweet #sifamily! It’s Furniture Fixer Upper day and I’m joining my FFU Crew for 5X the before and after FUN. If you’re new to the #siblog, I join these talented group of ladies on the 4th Thursday of the month. I’ll be sharing their makeovers and how-to-tutorials at the bottom of today’s post.
Check out this FREE curb-shopped Vintage Radio Cabinet. MMM found this piece in his parent’s neighborhood. I wish I knew the backstory. Someone had brushed it with white chalk paint and there was a little tag on the bottom leg. I’m guessing it was for sale at some point.
I LOVE working on curb-shopped salvaged finds. I feel I can indulge and try new colors, techniques or products — all without the worry of mucking it up. It’s fun to try things I might not otherwise try on pieces I’ve spent money on!
Like this bold pink and red combo! What do you think?

VINTAGE RADIO CABINET MAKEOVER
This old stereo cabinet required repair before painting. There were holes in the back, lifting veneer on the bottom and peeling paint all over.
Nick (aka MMM) did all the repairs on this one. He even helped shoot the DIY photography. I promised him photo credit like in the magazines. 😉
Nick cut a 1/4″ oak plywood to cover the back holes. When primed and painted, it blends in beautifully and you can’t even tell it’s there!
He also removed the veneer on the bottom of this cabinet and filled the holes/scratches to prep it for prime and paint.
Then it was my turn. I primed with my favorite B-I-N Shellac Based Primer.
Then I sprayed 2 coats of this Honky Tonk Red on the outside.
I have to admit, with all that’s going on in the world, these colors managed to brightened my mood!
And I couldn’t help myself, friends. While I was styling — I had to add the toilet paper. 😊
And now for some FURNITURE FIXER UPPER FUN!
Our dear friend Marie has decided to step back from the tour but you can still visit her anytime at Interior Frugalista to keep up with her amazing DIY projects. 🙂 [Marie, if you’re reading this, I know RED is your fav… I thought of you during this makeover!]
