This cabinet started out as a country Dry Sink that I had purchased 25 years ago. It no longer went with our current home since we were changing from American Country to French Country with Old World style.  I didn’t want to throw the cabinet out as there was nothing wrong with it so I had to come up with an idea.

I decided to turn it into a regular cabinet to match the rest of the décor.   First, John took the top of the dry sink off and then he added a piece of plywood to the top.  I added appliques to the front and added moldings and feet to make it more ornate.

I primed and then painted it with a Benjamin Moore color named Blonde in an eggshell finish.  I lived with it for a spell just with the painted finish, but then I decided I needed to faux it with glaze (of course LOL).  I used a light burnt umber glaze on this piece. I did a light treatment to the cabinet and it came out just as I had hoped.  It sits at the top of the stairs in our hallway with the Kathryn White Plate; it adds a touch of elegance too! In the near future I may be changing out the mirror; I have a project in mind.  Check back soon.
