DIY Curio transformation to a bright modern look

I haven’t tackled too many DIY projects as they usually go downhill, however I had been staring at this relatively drab corner of my otherwise bright and cheerful dining room for a few years with an air of apathy. The curio itself had good structure, holding a lot of my pretty plates and bowls and with its clear glass doors and interior lighting, I didn’t want to part ways. So, I bravely decided to try and paint it. Yikes! Once I started I knew there was no going back. Here I will share all the steps I took to make this corner into a breath of fresh air that I actually enjoy looking at.
