Clericuzio explains she found the white and brown sideboard abandoned outside and took it to transform it into a light pink and gold fully equipped cabinet that also features a hanging wine glass rack.

In the tutorial, Clericuzio sands the sideboard and applies wood fillers to all areas that have visible chips. Then, she paints the cabinet a pink shade and uses masking tape to create a decorative geometric design, which she sprays in gold, to create a look similar to a $1,400 sideboard on Wayfair.
