How to Turn a Blah Cabinet into a Beautiful Corner Curio - CoziNest

Turning this blasé cabinet into a more modern corner curio was a quick project that turned out lovely. While on a trip to Nashville, (pre-covid), my sister and I visited an antique store. I came home with this corner curio. The antique store was Gaslamp Antiques and if I lived in Nashville, it would be hard not to go everyday.

The Before and Afters of a Corner Curio

 

 

It’s surprising how much can be stored in this curio. I decided to try it out for a while before I sold it in the booth. The bottom housed all my Christmas China and glassware, while the top held another china pattern with even more glassware. Then I decided the upper interior section needed to be a bit brighter.

I removed the window panes, cleaned the entire piece with Krud Kutter and painted the interior top cabinet.

Updated Corner Curio

In the booth now, it has become a jewelry display cabinet. I was so pleased with the outcome that I almost moved it back into my house.

I love how bright this turned out. Everything shows up much better. The rounded front sets this piece apart from other corner curios.
