Art Deco Drinks Cabinet
Other than mid century modern my other favorite type of furniture to work on are art deco pieces! Especially art deco bars. I love how these pieces come back to style and people separated by decades can enjoy these pieces. Here is how I refinished another gorgeous beautylity drinks cabinet. You can find many of my pieces on Instagram @andreapalmai
the cabinet was in good shape but I could see that underneath that old varnish there was amazing grain. I first cleaned it as it has been in the garage.
I always sand my pieces with 120/220/320 grain sandpaper and orbital sander. I taped of the edges of the cabinet with frogtape ( for delicate surfaces) and painted the edge gold.
I try to always sketch out my design and since I was going with an art deco theme it was important to have a plan. It doesn't always turn out how the draft is (as you can tell) because I make changes on the go.
This is the front door of the cabinet where I wanted to feature my art deco design in gold and navy the two accent colors for my project.
Once the tape was off I already loved it
This part was very time consuming but fun. You have to wait till the paint dries to add the next part of the design but all I had was time during quarantine. I used valspar furniture paint in navy to complete the rest of the cabinet and detailing.
Once the whole piece was finished I rubbed the wood parts down with Danish teak oil! That took the piece to a whole new level. That grain is like 🔥🔥🔥
