Deciding to Paint a Family Heirloom


My Grandma's corner cupboard is a very old piece and one item that I have been pressured not to paint (even though in her day it was painted). I finally decided that Grandma certainly wouldn't care if I painted it - so I went for it! Here are the results.
I used paint that I used in my dining room - BM Edgecomb Gray with inside door panels in BM Revere Pewter.

    It looks gorgeous. I have my grandmother's corner cupboard too and have yet to paint it (not saying never though - just haven't had the time). Love that basket!
