Happy New Years! My first project of 2013
I feel like a ran a marathon last year, starting with the Fancy Flea (My first crack at being a vendor). Then straight into The Wedding rehearsal dinner projects, my Daughter in law staying with me for 4 months and MANY DIY wedding projects...The Wedding on Thanksgiving weekend, then Christmas, New Years and ...Yea I survived a super fun year!
I have so many ideas and plans for 2013...Lets get started!
This was the cabinet in my entrance way (Actually right inside the front door..I don't have an entrance way lol) and it was driving me crazy, it was so outdated
Hello the 90's called and want their cabinet back!
When I did my home tour I tried to disguise it by showing this picture. Oh, see the pretty round mirror....Well...
It guess it's going to be a bad 7 years! I broke the mirror!
I thought Ok, now is the time to paint this beast! I found this new mirror at the thrift store for $14.14 (Our thrift store does weird prices like this) and it worked well with the cabinet
This is one cheap piece of furniture. I got it 15 years ago at "Big Lots", it's particle board, with hollow doors and knobs that are glued on,
I did a test run with the gold Rub and Buff
And oop's pink paint on this piece HERE
I kind of liked it so I went to work on the cabinet
The knobs were glued on so I was not able to change them
I used a little Annie Sloan dark wax over the whole piece with a little heavier application in the crevices.
Then highlighted the trim with gold Rub and Buff (Which goes on after the wax) and I was done.
It looks much better than it did and... It's growing on me, I've never had a piece of pink furniture!
CHECK...One Project done!
