Painted French Provincial China Cabinet

Latest Project!

Sorry no before pictures! Picture orangeish wood and a dated look.

Painted with Annie Sloan "Old White". I pretty mush did a once over with the paint because I knew I was going to distress it and it did not need to be perfect. The upper part and shelves was painted with a light blue Valspar oops paint. This paint was valspar's paint and primer low voc-green paint. It took 3+ coats to cover this baby! I went over the white chalk paint with a walnut colored craft paint. I dry brushed with it over the entire piece.

I think the walnut and old white played nice together! I reused the original hardware because it all matched and stayed with character of the piece!

If you are in Raleigh and need a china cabinet...let me know!!

Been a While

It has been a while since my last post. It has been busy around here. A lot of projects have been bought and sold. Here are some of what I have been working on. As usual not a lot of "before" pics. I hope to be better with the updates and pics. Let me know what you think!

This buffet was in terrible shape. No hardware. A couple of names carved into the top!

This buffet was your typical worn out stain. Veneer was gone in places. Replaced with all iron hardware. Custom made the front apron board on left to match.

The before would have scared you! It was the pale yellow but with red highlights instead of your typical gold! Multiple coats of primer. Painted and then tons of glaze! It did have good bones though!

I have plenty of other furniture projects coming your way! Stay tuned!!
