cabinet help.....

i need your help faithful readers. this chippy cabinet has been in the family longer than i have. and it needs some help. right now it's a not-s0-awesome blue, and i want to paint it. i hope it will be the centerpiece in my studio when i move out. and i'll have a wee tiny bit of downtime next week so i want to spiff it up. here's what it looks like now:

and these are the other things that will for SURE be in my studio:

here in no particular order are some ideas i have been kicking around.

Blue large-scale suzani

pink large scale suzani

shabby turquoise

grey otomi pattern (or any color)
blue/green ikat

small scale suzani (could be any color obvs.)

mint suzani (that sounds like it should also be a drink...hmmm...)

ok what do you think!?!?!?

Paint it black, with a layer of cobalt blue on top. Sand the edges through to black.
