Frenchy Mail Cabinet

  This piece has been driving me crazy! 


I purchased it several months ago at a Flea Market.  My first thought was to tag it and take it right to my booth.  But that never happened because after I brought it home I didn’t really feel/like its color.   So needless to say, it sat in my garage waiting for me to decide what color I should repaint it.  Well, after months of sitting in the garage I finally made a decision.  I repainted it using Miss Mustard Seed Grain Sack and Shutter Gray milk paint.  


I painted the outside of the cabinet Grain Sack and the inside Shutter Gray.  I also painted the front of the drawers with Shutter Gray.  


I lightly distressed it and then applied Miss Mustard Seed Furniture Wax on it. 


I’m so glad to be done with this piece!  I can honestly say I think it looks so much prettier with it’s new color!  Now, I will tag it and take it to my booth. 


As always, thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful week and stay cool….I think summer has finally arrived!!

End Table Make-over

Back in May, Charlie and I attended a benefit yard sale for wounded warriors.  Everything in this yard sale was donated by the people in the community.  It was a huge yard sale with a lot of nice things.  I bought quite a few furniture pieces and this end table was one of my purchases.  


Overall, this piece was in excellent condition other than a few knicks and scratches on it.  With some Annie Sloan chalk paint, the knicks and scratches were all easy fixes. 


I did, however, sanded and re-stained the top of the table.  I wanted a darker stain than what was originally on it.      


  I used Miniwax Dark Walnut. 


Today, I took it to my booth. 


I’m hoping that it sells quickly because if it’s still there when I go back it just might come back home with me. 


As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July!
