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.
