So the plan for this art deco record cabinet was a similar design as I've done for a few other pieces. It was going to be a combination of high gloss red and raw wood. But my red can of paint was nowhere to be found. As I was looking for it, I spotted my small container of Martha Stewart metallic silver paint which I used on a small part of another piece. All of sudden, it seemed fitting to paint a record cabinet in silver. So out with the red... in with the silver.

Process -Sanded the exterior with orbital sander down to the raw wood/veneer. -Taped off the design with Frog Tape. -Painted several coats of silver till those areas were completely covered. -Sealed with Minwax Wipe-On Polyurethane.
