Not my cabinet-but similar . The pattern of the punched tin was hearts.
While the punched tin hearts had their day, the cabinet was in dire need of an update! I still love it- and use it, so I thought giving it a little face lift would add a few more years to it. The top part holds my baking supplies, packaged mixes, etc. and I store my small garden flags in the drawer.
I considered several options to replace the punched tin. Chicken wire is always a popular choice, and has sort of a Tuscan look. Then I thought about adding frosted, ribbed glass, which I really love.
I bought a black cabinet from JCPenney a few years ago which has wainscoting paneled doors. I really like that look!
I decided to try to match up the two cabinets, so I bought a piece of waiscoting at Lowe's ($9) and painted it black. Dad cut the panels out and replaced the tin. I think it turned out great!! I'm still trying to decide if I want to paint the drawer and side panels black. I can always do that later though.
