China Cabinet Makeover (from Traditional to Farmhouse)
As a Furniture Artist, I am always looking for different ways to transform my pieces. For this project I wanted to take a traditional looking china cabinet and transform it into more of a rustic farmhouse style with barnwood and pure white paint.
The product I used to back the interior is called "Stikwood". It is real wood planking that you just peel and stick. The exterior got a fresh coat of pure white paint which was distressed and waxed ("Simplicity" by Country Chic Paint).
So the Stikwood comes in a box similar to wood flooring. There are different-sized lengths and are 5" in width. You can install them vertically or horizontally and are cut easily with a miter saw. You then just peel and stick them on. As simple as that.
The first thing I did is remove the traditional wood moulding on top and painted the exterior.
I then measured, cut, peeled and stuck the Stikwood planks.
It was really that simple!
And lastly, I then added a simpler moulding to replace the traditional one.
I love the rustic wood with the white ironstone.
