My mom has had this cabinet for 30 years and recently asked me to refinish it for her. My brother made this for his 8th grade shop project. She was open to me choosing the color. I chose a bright and cheery color, yellow (and her favorite color). I also replaced the hardware with an oil rubbed bronze finish and added a much needed shelf inside.
color Benjamin Moore Dalila 319, and to seal it, water base Polycrylic
by Minwax, clear gloss (which will not alter the color).
