You may have seen a photo of my free china cabinet, but today I wanted to take you step by step through the process from beginning to end.
This was how it all began.
My husband drug this up from the basement of the home we recently purchased.
My first step was to guard the glass by sliding old calendar pages between the glass and the wooden cut work pattern on the door.
Use anything stiff, like old cereal boxes, if you don't have an old calendar.
Next I painted the cabinet with a coat of primer.
My favourite is Kilz.
I had to give it two coats of interior laytex turquoise paint.
I didn't like the new look of the paint job, so I went back with my sander and added a little age to it!
I just love the chippy, shabby look it has now.
I haven't gotten the inside done yet.
That will have to be my next tutorial!
I am hooking up today over at Debbie-Doo's for
her and Ann on Sutton's Place Blitzed on Pinterest party.
