Cabinet gets a new look

My cabinet is what gave inspiration to my whole apartment. I saw a photo in the Swedish Saturday magazine Leva & Bo which comes with the newspaper Expressen. In the photo there was a black cabinet and with the white walls and black floor I thought it looked fantastic. On the wall, above the cabinet they had black and white pictures in black frames and on the floor a black and white striped rug. I am sorry that I haven’t saved the magazine clip so I can show it to you.



The photo got me thinking. I had an old cabinet in a purple/pinkish wood pattern which I did not know if I should keep or sell. I believe it is originally from Ikea but I got it second-hand about 10 years ago. When I saw the picture, it was like lightning hit my head, and I thought to myself, why not paint it? So that is what I did. I had to paint 3 coats before it was solid black, but it was so worth it. I also switched the door knobs or door handles, and it made such a difference.
