We received this cabinet from a gal at church. It was sitting in our front room housing books. I had been looking for a way to store my Pyrex while also making it easily accessible. When I realized that this "bookshelf" was actually an old china cabinet, that used to have glass sliding doors on the front, I decided that it should be moved to our kitchen. David suggested placing it where it happens to sit today. It fits perfectly.
I got wind that Valspar was giving away small painting kits along with a small paint sample. I started browsing the colors just for fun. I ended up picking out a fun gray color. When I went to order it I found out that the name is actually Vintage Gray. How fitting for my Pyrex.
The little kit came complete with mini rollers, paint, and paint samples in complimentary colors with my Vintage Gray.
I really wanted the color of my Pyrex to pop while sitting on the shelves, so I opted to paint the back of the shelves white. Guess what? Since I was only painting the front and sides of the cabinet I had more than enough paint to paint this cabinet with just the little sample I was sent.
