The Greige Farmhouse Cabinet is done!
Remember the before?Here is the after!I used Sherwin Williams “Perfect Greige” and mixed it with the Vintage Storehouse Restoration Company chalky powder to create a chalk paint. It adhered nicely. I used 220 to 400 grit to distress and sand it back to smoothness and Annie Sloan clear wax as a sealer.The window panes add even more character to this very vintage piece.
I placed pretty paper onto the shelves and the inside of the drawer to add a pop of color. The removable paper ties in with the pop of persimmon that was painted inside the bottom cabinet. Replacing the hardware was not easy. It took a trip to the Woodworkers Club to remove a stubborn screw from a door and a lot of wood filler before sanding them to smoothness. New holes were drilled for the new pulls and I’m really happy I went to the trouble!
The new ceramic pulls give just the right touch.
It’s done! The Greige Farmhouse Cabinet with a Pop of Persimmon is now available on Etsy or Shop Furniture/Cabinets.
