It's time for another Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest project...
The theme for this month's contest is "A FRESH START" and I had this broken cabinet that I have been wanting to fix up for awhile.
This months sponsor is General Finishes and we got to paint with their new chalk style paint.

details, so I had my work cut out for me. To repair the broken bow detail I loosely shaped some joint compound and let it dry. When it was almost dry I shaped it more precisely with a thin scalpel and my fingernail. I also repaired the broken door with wood glue and clamps.
I have used General Finishes milk paint before and loved it, so I was excited to use their new chalk style paint. I ordered Key West Blue from General Finishes and loved the bright turquoise color. I decided to to lighten the blue color with white chalk paint to get a soft aqua color for the outside of the cabinet. I painted the cabinet in two coats of this soft blue and the coverage and ease were fantastic.
For the inside of the cabinet I just used the Key West Blue from the can and love the bold color.
I wanted the details on the doors to pop, so I painted them in white chalk paint with a small artist paintbrush.
The last steps were to distress the edges of the cabinet with my scraper and seal the entire piece with Linseed Oil and AS dark wax.
|I am swooning over the details on the door!|
|I kept the original hardware|
|I love that the top two drawers pull out for easy access and storage.|
|I adore the two aqua colors together!|
I am lovin' General Finishes new paint!
