Vintage china cabinet reveal!


As promise my finished vintage china cabinet ......it sure was a lot of work, but so worth it! this was my first time working with Annie Sloan chalk paint and I must say it's great......I'm loving the way she turned out.....first I gave it a couple of coats of Annie Sloan chalk paint....boy was she thirsty.....lol....then I wax her with Annie Sloan clean wax.....after that I glaze her with an antique glaze to tone done the bright white......I'm so happy at how it turn out.....













I spray painted the chicken wire in gold to clean it up a bit it was looking a little dingy....now she shines......















touches of gold for added elegance......












Hung a pretty tassel to dress her up.....














I painted the trim in gold to marry her to my dining room table......















Now she matches my dining room table beautifully.....hummmm I'm thinking to paint or not to paint my dining room chairs.....any thoughts on that friends?......

Sorry for the dark pic but I'm not good at taking picture and my iPad takes terrible pic's, I did post pic's on face book and they look much better then these.....





Love the gold details....

Pretty details my table has, like the scallop edges....





I'm still not allow to put anything on top of my table as the paint has to cure till Monday, but me sooooo happy with the way she turned out....
Thanks for your sweet comments in advance my friends....
