July 5th, 2018 – Hanging Accent Cabinet

I bought this beautiful antique kitchen cabinet at Hausita Revival & Antique Market in New Braunfels, Texas this week. Hausita is a must if you’re ever in NB and you love antique shopping or farmhouse decor. I spent 7 hours refinishing it by hand with a new vision.

This is what it looked like when I picked it up…edited green shelf 1.pngI sanded it by hand to smooth out the surface prior to painting and soaked the hardware in a crock pot overnight to remove the green paint. It is re-finished with Annie Sloan Aubusson Blue chalk paint on the frame, with a clear wax and dark wax hand finish. The panels are Behr Linen White washed with a diluted wash overlay of Ralph Laurens Silver Metallic to give it a distressed look, with a hint of shimmer in just the right sunlight. This is the finished product..cabinet1cabinet2cabinet3
