Old Fashioned Little Cabinet

April 13, 2010 0 Comments

Yesterday I showed you this little beauty that I was working on. My mom found it for me at a thrift store and it was originally painted a beautiful robin’s egg blue. Then some lost soul thought it would look much better painted this horrid brown with massive brush strokes in the finish!

Shudder.


So I got out my trusty white paint and brushes and painted away the brown!

I love how the inside has the wooden slats on the sides and bottom. It’s very solid and old!



I used sandpaper to distress the edges and I love how it turned out!


For now it’s in Avery’s room, but I’m forcing myself to list it on the French Farmhouse. It’s so hard to part with some of these lovelies!

I moved the tissue paper pom poms that I used for the birthday party into Avery’s room.

I have visions of children jumping on the bed and crushing those beautiful flowers, but let’s hope that doesn’t happen!
