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.
A Lovely 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.
Whether your style is modern or traditional, showing a little tender loving care to an antique can update it to fit into your home.
