Cabinet Makeover – Veranellies

Good day, DIY’ers! I love beautiful furniture makeovers, don’t you? Today I want to introduce you to a new-to-me blog friend who shares how she removed old paint and refinished a vintage cabinet. Meet: Trisha from Veranellies.


The cabinet before was in sad shape, messy paint job and unloved…

Trisha removed the countertop and got started.
  • heat gun
  • scraper (metal, plastic will melt)
Point the heat gun at the paint surface until the paint will begins to bubble. Once it bubbles, scrape with the grain of the wood (more like pushing the melted paint). This will take off the first layer. Repeat to get down to bare wood.
