netto inspired diy

d*s reader summer sent in this fun diy project she finished recently. “i bought a dirty, ugly cabinet off of craigslist for $20 and refinished it ‘david netto style‘. when i cleaned it, it turned out to be solid teak, but i thought the white body would look really great in contrast to the teak sliding doors. i think it looks like a million bucks!” i love summer’s spin on david netto‘s signature style- it’s a great idea for those of us who love his furniture but live on a less than netto-budget. thanks, summer!



It was from a bank, so even though the front and frame were thick, solid teak, the top was definitely a gross laminate…so I either had to replace the laminate or paint! I definitely want to see Zee’s cabinet when done…the inspiration photo is very cool.


Gorgeous. I also recently inherited a couple of walnut sideboards from the 50s and they are in nice condition but I’m struggling with making everything look more modern … but i don’t have the guts to do this to them …


You simply amaze me! You did a beautiful job……P.S. Where do you find the time??


I absolutely love that beige lamp on the rocking side board. any details on it awa well?
