I received this china cabinet for free and decided it would perfect for the challenge.
Hand Painted China Cabinet Makeover
Well, you’re either going to love this next makeover or think I’ve lost my mind. Who knows, I may have! Wait until you see this china cabinet makeover!!! Dixie Belle Paint Company announced a friendly challenge-try to get six colors on one piece of furniture. So it was time for this traditional, classic style painter to get creative!
The colors I had to use.
The red paint reminded me of poppies so I did a quick google search for a “poppy painting” and found one that pretty much had all 6 colors right in the painting. I took a risk and thought I could at least try to transfer the painting to the china cabinet.
Not knowing at all if this would turn out, and being okay with it if it didn’t, I decided to just have fun. It was just paint after all.
I would let each layer dry, walk away for a bit and come back for more. It was just too fun. Finally I got to where I liked it – a little crazy, but good. A china cabinet sure to brighten up anyone’s dining room for sure!
I had a piece of seeded glass cut at a local glass shop, it’s just the prettiest finishing touch! The inside of the cabinet was painted in Sand Bar; I wanted to keep that very neutral since the outside of the china cabinet has plenty of color. This would be a fun piece to display dishes, or perhaps to use as a bookshelf?
I distressed all the edges to give it even more interest and texture. I love the way it turned out! You can see the whole project here.
