China Cabinet Makeover

American Paint Company – Fireworks Red

A few weeks ago I decided to sign on as a retailer for American Paint Company.  When I got my first shipment of paint I was like a kid in a candy store!  I was dying to paint something so the first day I painted a tray with Liberty. It was incredible!  Super smooth and lush!  It covered in one coat!!!  One coat!!  I almost couldn’t believe it!  It dries super fast and is VOC free so there are no odors!
After finishing the tray I had to paint something else.
I was dying to use Fireworks Red.  It looked so bright and vibrant in the can, I couldn’t wait to get it out.  While I was sitting at the kitchen table it hit me that I could repaint this china cabinet that has been in my family since I was a little girl.
I had painted it a few years ago with black spray paint.  It needed a lot of work and it was one of the first pieces I had redone.
This was right after I brought it into the house, you can see how much my kitchen has changed and the gray fur ball in the right corner is my kitty that is no longer with us.  I loved it black but after redoing the kitchen I decided it was too dark and was originally going to paint it turquoise.  I am so glad I waited because I think the red is perfect!
This is a true gorgeous, vibrant red and I am so happy I didn’t paint it turquoise!
I used Liberty inside.  I think the lighter color makes a huge difference!


  1. Fireworks Red is one of my favorite colors. Great choice and beautiful distressing! I also love the bead board inside.

  2. I love when an old family piece is given new life. I’m sure your children and children’s children will enjoy it for many more years. Great Job
