The Power of Paint

6.02.2015

I know I have shared the white chippy cabinet from Decor Steals recently, and I'm so glad some of y'all were able to purchase it at the sale on Sunday, but my white chippy cabinet is not white anymore. Yes, that's right I decided to paint it.


There are several layers of paint. I started with Annie Sloan chalk paint® in Graphite. Then layered on a few more colors.

I wet sanded some spots and used white and dark waxes.

I even painted the wire mesh screen and the handles.

The top of it even did a little chipping.

After it was finished I styled it again and just a little differently.

Yesterday I showed you the two large fishing floats I found over the weekend. I ordered some small ones on Ebay and stuck one of them in this small ironstone tureen.

On the top shelf I added this old majolica plate and placed the small piece of coral I already had in front of it. 



This is the Dundee jar I just scored over the weekend. 

You can see some of the layers of paints above the sea fan.

The cabinet has moved to a new spot on top of the chest in the guest room.


There's nothing like the power of paint to completely transform a piece that works better in my home.

I hope y'all will come back for Wow Us Wednesdays tonight and share any transformation or inspiration you may have to show off.

See y'all there!

  14. You are so talented Kim. I look forward to your post everyday. Have you ever considered doing a
    painting class for those of us more "challenged than talented"? Seriously, do you know of classes
    in the north Atlanta metro area?

    1. Donna, I am not a stockist so I can't teach. There are classes in North Atlanta. There is a lady in Cumming and I cannot think of what her shop is called. She teaches with Annie Sloan chalk paint and Miss Mustard Seed milk paint. At the Queen of Hearts they teach with other brands.

    2. Brushstrokes By Mary Ann is the one in Cumming. Just google it.
