Furniture Update

Hello my friends, during this time I am getting projects done, exercising and keeping busy.  We will get through this scary time, I truly believe we are an incredibly strong Country.

Today, I’m sharing a cabinet I repainted, this cabinet is over 20 years old, I’m hoping you’ll see how paint is magical,  I know I say this often but it’s true.

You will notice my painting has improved dramatically, don’t judge.  I look at these pictures and am amazed I left it this way.

A you can see painting began on the outside, thankfully I remembered to snap a photo.

Since we’ve been in this house it’s been in my husband’s office.   I knew I would repaint it and use it in a new spot I needed to figure out what I wanted to use this cabinet for and where.  I  love the lines of this piece and the legs.  I have a deep love for legs on furniture or anything footed in decorating accessories.

I used Jolie paint for my paint choice.  There was a sale and I have wanted to try Farmhouse Beige so I  purchased a quart, this color is a keeper. 

I wanted to add gilding and I didn’t want to go overboard.   I decided to use gilding wax around the glass and knobs.   The appliqué on the bottom I knew would always be gilded.

It’s filled with dishes and pieces of silver I enjoy seeing.

The tureen I found thrifting for $5 as well as the candlestick.   When I spotted the tureen, the soft blue drew me to it right away.  The candlestick has a mate which is fun and they can be used together or separately.

An antique teacup saucer from my grandmother filled with dried rose buds and a crown add a romantic feel that I love.

I hope with some of the painting projects I have been sharing it has shown you the beauty paint can add no matter the size of the piece.
