Before & After Cabinet Makeover...

Over the weekend If found two of these glass cabinets for a steal. I decided that I would purchase them and give them a nice makeover. I haven't redone a piece of furniture in years. It seems like the older I get, the less patience I have for projects. 
I went to Home Depot to look at paint colors. I knew that I wanted to paint the back of the shelf a different color and since I am on a mint green kick, I went with Gliddens Minty Green for the back and Martha Stewarts Zinc for the gray and I did both colors in a flat finish. I used Home Depot's Behr paint line that is self-priming so there is no need to prime or sand (my kind of paint). 
I just did one coat of the gray on the real wood and since the back of the cabinet is more like a laminate piece, I had to do two coats. I think I know where I am going to put the two but I need to find some accessories to go inside as well as two matching table lamps. 
I will post a picture once they are in their final destination. Does anyone have any good tips on how to photograph artwork/furniture pieces that have glass? The glass is so reflective so it's hard to get a good shot!




Maybe I need to do re-takes :)
