Furniture Restoration: From Shabby Chic to WOW!

The owner I purchased this from said she was "into shabby chic and I wanted this to match my guest room." I could tell that it was made of wood and was a higher end cabinet from examining the unpainted interior. However, I did not know for certain what was under all that white, blue and green paint! Watch the video to see what a little elbow grease and a lot of furniture stripper did to transform this cabinet!

This entire video has no spoken words- only shops sounds. If you have any questions that remain unanswered after watching the video, please feel free to ask me in the comments. I always respond to comments.
