I have been buying furniture and painting like a mad woman getting ready for the Prairie Sisters Party in Billings next month.
Furniture makeovers float my boat… in spite of the fact that I recently read a comment on an online article that called the painting of vintage/antique furniture the “Annie Sloan Holocaust”!
Yikes! What a brutal statement.
Personally, I think leaving this cabinet in it’s former condition would have been the true horror.
I just finished this China cabinet last night. I’m thrilled with how it came out.
This is it’s humble 1970ish beginning.
Oy! Those huge pulls make me dry heave a little.
The inside got a quick spray of primer. (Don’t worry…I opened a window!)
And then I rolled on some blue latex paint. This was one of the colors that I was considering in my kitchen remodel.
Please ignore the paint dust on the floor.
I prefer my furniture pulls, like I prefer my jewelry…small. I like my furniture to wear the hardware, not the hardware to wear the furniture. Know what I mean?
Today, I’m working on a small desk/vanity. Someone “refinished” it, but as you can see by the photo above, they sanded it AGAINST the grain instead of WITH the grain. Oy!
Loooocy, you got some sanding to do!
Bye from the bungalow,
