Thankfully, my mother has been on the mission as well. She does love a shopping mission. This weekend she came through (Thanks Mom!) and got us a wonderful little metal topped antique cabinet. Fits perfect! However, it didn't match the kitchen. So I painted it. I sanded it, cleaned it, took all the handles off and painted 2 coats on it. The finished project is wonderful. Below are the before and after pics.
My total project time was only 1 and 1/2 hrs!! I'm always so afraid to start these projects, thinking I'll never finish it in a timely manner, but it's really much easier than you think.
