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!!
