Fabulous China Cabinet Make Over
I have had this cabinet for over 40 years. It wasn't damaged in any way but it looked dated. I used chalk paint and it is transformed. I just love it! I used textured wall paper in the back and rubbed the same paint on it. In the picture it looks silver but it is the same blue
I wiped down the whole cabinet with tsp. I did not have to sand. I removed the glass and used painters tape to protect the hardware
After the first coat I followed recommendations to add water to the paint for the second coat. Worked like a dream. For this project I choose not to use a wax.
I used textured wall paper in the back. Then I rubbed the sheer color on and off for a wonderful affect. This is a close up of the result
The final results are wonderful

Thank you. I really enjoyed the project
I have an old cabinet, how about chairs, does it work the same?
How about painting chairs and table can you use the same paint?
