Makeover Fun - Better After!

I found this adorable cabinet at a barn sale and thought it would be a good way to organize some things.  I wanted to change the color and make it a little more fun!

So, I started out by giving it a good cleaning and letting it dry in the sun.

 Then priming it with 2 coats so that the black wouldn't show through.
 I did one coat of turquoise.  Then another.

I wanted to age it a bit, to make it look worn and loved, so I sanded all the edges and then cleaned off the dust.  Then, I wanted to add something to make it even more fun!

I use matte medium to adhere some brightly colored paper to line the drawers.
I like it!
