No, this is not the same post as yesterday.
This cabinet matches the bookshelf.
So I chose to paint them the same.
Americana Decor Chalky Finish in Everlasting and Vintage.
It is quite amazing at the outright hatred this color can provoke.
Even people who love pink, do not like mauve.
DO YOU SAY MAHVE OR MOHVE?
Like the companion bookshelf, the cabinet is a good, sturdy, real wood piece.
The cabinet has plenty of storage.
Squint really hard and you can see the shelf folded up in the back.
A good sanding to get some tooth - the finish was slick and glossy.
Latex Bermuda Sand for the back.
Vintage for the inside.
I have been using this color for accents and insides.
I think it might be time to do a whole piece in this color.
It took two coats to cover the mauve.
The outside in Everlasting.
The bookshelf and the cabinet had been professionally refinished in the mauve.
See this carved detail?
I tried to figure out how to bring it back to life on both pieces.
However the detail had been sanded almost flat.
Everyone has a tip for painting doors without the hardware.
My tip involves waxed twine.
I fold a piece in half.
Tie a large knot on one side.
Slide it through the hole.
Tie a large knot on the other side.
Opens the doors easily.
Stays out of the way when painting.
I used the same pulls - I liked the aged dark finish to the brass.
Available in Booth C-23, Riverfront Antique Mall in North Augusta, SC.
Along with the bookshelf - in case you need a pair!
Update on the small booth next week. I spent seven hours cleaning and arranging stuff on Tuesday.
It almost killed me!
