I love, love, love, this!!! As a matter of fact, when I finished transforming this little cabinet..... I knew I had to keep it.
My daughter in law was visiting for a week and we had sooo much fun thifting, junking, and antique store shopping....Oh my, we got tons of great stuff!
I couldn't wait to start on this little cabinet we found for $20 in a junk yard
It was a little plain so I added, plaster beads down the side, they were made in a gum paste mold, tutorial HERE. Then I added two plaster roses, tutorial HERE. And finished with spackle cake decorating on the outside of the roses, tutorial HERE.
Now's when it comes to life!!!
I used homemade chalk paint which was a mixture of plaster of paris, a touch of water, and heirloom white paint.
Then finished with dark wax to bring out the flower and bead detail. I used Annie Sloan dark wax which I mix with clear Minwax. I find the AS wax too dark on it's own, so I lighten it a little with the clear wax.
Almost done.........For the finishing touch I added wallpaper to the interior
Then stood back and fell in love!
Now, where to put it? My house is so small that I can't add anything unless I get rid of something......Hum...How about here? Ugg on the air vent, a necessary ugly?
This wine rack was a gift from my son many years ago so, I'm not getting rid of it, just storing it in the attic for awhile.
I think the cabinet looks perfect here under my teapot picture. I saw that picture on my friend Sissies' blog a couple years ago. I loved it so much I ran right out and bought it.
Guess what.......The wine fits perfect in my little cabinet!
Momma's got her wine!!!
Actually, I don't like the taste of wine lol! But, every time someone comes for dinner they bring a bottle, how sweet is that!
I'm in love!
Yep, I'm keeping it! I seldom keep furniture pieces that I buy with the intention to flip and sell
Those of you that sell, how often do you finish a project and decide to keep it?
PS: I am going to do a post on vintage wedding veils on 4/29. If you have vintage wedding veils and would like to do a post on the 29th email me and we could all link our posts to each other.
