Git Yer Gun!

Or at least your gun cabinet.  This is one of the first projects I did at my new job.  Sorry for the low quality photos--took them with my horrible phone camera.  I started with a basic gun cabinet, somehat like this, but not quite so fancy and with some really dated etched glass in it.
I removed the glass and the gun cabinet innards and slapped some white, yellow, and blue paint on the cabinet.  I added red over the top and used tape to take the paint off and distress it. 
 I then added shelves, some old tongue and groove boards painted yellow for the back, chicken wire where the glass was, and some fantastic yellow knobs.  It sold within a couple of hours of being in the shop.

  4. Love that this sold so quickly! Of course the makeover you gave it added LOTS of character - no wonder it went so fast. Hoping I can find a really great (and cheap)gun cabinet or armoire or hutch/cabinet or such to use for storage in my daughter's room.
