This hand crafted corner cabinet had lost its pizzazz and banished to the garage. That was until my daughter found it and brought it home for a reloving. The size was perfect to give loads of storage in a room tucked neatly in the corner and with some paint, stencils and dark wax it was given new life.
I chose layers of colors to give a more authentic look starting with a duck blue as the base coats and 3 good solid coats in the bottom storage cabinet behind the door.
Then added a warm creamy color topped with a vintage white. The layers are perfect on an old piece and when sanded give added dimension and color to a piece.
Because it might see lots of traffic on the shelves I sealed it with 3 coats of poly. To add further charm I stenciled the same duck blue color in a fun vintage tin tile stencil on the door front as well as on the shelf surfaces. A new knob was added in the duck blue as well then all was aged further with dark wax. Tadaa!!
