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?......

Dearest Mari,
At least this vintage china cabinet turned out great!
You have to follow your heart as it is nearly impossible to obtain a full impression of the entire room by only looking at photos.
Good luck and enjoy summer too!
Hugs,
Mariette

Roselle, thank you sweet friend about the chalk paint it a little thicker and covers better then regular paint....

Mari said...

Mariette, your so right one must follow one heart and it will turn out fine ;-) my dining room and living room is a work in progress, I want to paint my walls and remove the horrible rug, I have hard wood floors under that wakeful rug....but that's another project......

Mari said...

Des, sweet friend I'm seriously thinking about painting my chairs, I want to remove the horrible rugs I have wood under that rug, paint the walls in a pretty neutral color and etc......
