When I get in the mood to start on a project I want it done yesterday. Last week I was ready to make this curio cabinet over, but I didn't have the paint I wanted so a trip to the store was needed. The local shop that sells Annie Sloan Chalk paint is about a forty five minute or so drive. I had only been once before so I googled for directions and used my phone instead of putting it in the car navigation.
All was good as I was heading down the road until I saw the phone screen stating that.....
.....the shop might be closed before I get there. I'm like what? It's only lunch time and why would it be closed? Then I looked at their hours and they are closed on Mondays. Why, oh, why are they not open on Mondays?
Now, like I said I wanted this job finished so I need the paint now. I remembered there is another shop in the opposite direction that sells the paint, too so I headed south instead of north. I was on a mission to get this paint.
As you can see I got the paint and I worked on this piece for two days. I replaced the plate shelf that hung on this wall since 2012 with this cabinet to hold more of my ironstone collection. The plate rack could only hold a few pieces.
This cabinet holds so much more and with the doors closed I have less dusting to do.
I chose blue for the inside to show off all the white.
The more we worked on the cabinet we found cool things about it. I was trying to remove these knobs so I could paint the drawers and when Mr. Savvy finally got one off we found out they are solid wood with a peg bottom that fits in the hole. First time we have seen this. We put that one back on and I painted around them.
View from the sitting room.
Hard to get a full front shot of this. I stood in the powder room for this one. This is sitting in the little hall outside our master bedroom that runs between the sitting room on the front and the great room on the back. It's just a short hall.
I will share the details of what I used and how I refinished this piece soon.
Can y'all believe it's already Thursday?
Have a good one!
