I liked the bones of this cabinet & the yellow one was on sale but yellow is not in my colour scheme. My plan was to strip it (never fun) & then stain it a dark espresso colour. I had to abandon that plan when the stain did not take evenly so I painted over it with solid grey instead & changed the hardware. As a matter of fact, I don’t think any piece of furniture I own has its original hardware on it. Changing hardware is a really good trick to make pieces look customized or vintage or just to upscale a look.
