This is the story of a cabinet. This cabinet used to be plain pine with not a drop of paint on it anywhere. This cabinet has a crazy owner who has not painted it only once, but several times.The most recent makeover was done last weekend....Labor Day weekend. Yes, while most folks were doing normal things on a holiday weekend like swimming, grilling out, boating or just relaxing this crazy woman was painting this cabinet one more time.
The new color is Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Grain Sack. Same as the drop leaf table across the room.
The first time it was painted a pretty yellow with red ticking fabric added to the door insets. The cabinet was happy in yellow and red.
Then the room changed colors and the yellow had to go. So out came Annie Sloan chalk paints and greys, blues, and layers were added.
The last color was a coat of CoCo washed over French Linen. Both are Annie Sloan paints.
The brown gray color just wasn't working in the room anymore so it needed to change to lighter and brighter.
The good thing about being painted over and over is the layers that pull through when you sand.
Now if you follow me on instagram you saw progress shots of this as I was working on it.
I did rub a little Vaseline here and there so the milk paint would resist. This makes it much easier to sand to the color underneath.
Hopefully this look will stay around. Mr. Savvy always has to smart off and say, "it will change tomorrow".
He is so much fun to live with. :)
This was not an expensive piece of furniture. I bought it at HomeGoods years ago. I think the paint has only improved it.
