A Before and After!

Recently, I found this jewelry cabinet at a yard sale for only $5.00. However, it was in pretty bad shape! My daughter, Jessica was with me when I found it and so I decided it would be fun to redo it for her. 
The mirror wasn't even attached and as I was leaving the guy who sold it to me ran up and handed me a bunch of knobs and screws that supposedly went with it! My husband put it all back together and added some new knobs.
I knew it had potential and was excited to see how it would turn out! Jessica definitely needed a bigger place to keep all her jewelry and stuff!
The paint color I used was Lyndhurst Duchess Blue by Valspar. It's the same color I used when I redid a little table from a roadside find last year. I primed it first, then used a finishing wax to protect it.
Here is the link to that post.
