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.
