Black and white home theater turned into a colorful focal point

Black and white furniture is always beautiful. It’s a classic combination of colors and it never gets old. However, it might get monotonous after a while. That’s why a change is welcomed from time to time. This one black and white home theatre just got a makeover. It still preserved its charm but with a colorful touch.

The unit now features a bright pop of green and this change wasn’t achieved with the help of paint but using vinyl electrical tapes. It was a long and tedious process but in the end it paid up. The result is very rewarding. Now this unit has character and a look not that different from the old one but striking enough to become a central point of attention. In order to get that bold green tone, options such as contact paper weren’t good enough.

The final look was achieved using used self-adhesive lime green vinyl sheets for a base and two types of vinyl electrical tape for the stripes. The vinyl sheets had to be applied using one by one using a t-square as a squeegee. For this process the doors had to be removed. When they were completely covered with vinyl sheets they were put back onto the cabinets and the tape was applied across the surface of the cabinets, one long row at a time. It was a long process but the results are more than inspiring.{found on housepoint0}.
