I’m on my way to New York to visit my sister and will bring back a ton of pics to share of the Brooklyn Carriage House! Today I’m sharing a previous makeover of a boring cabinet that turned into a beauty. I loved the paint color combo on this piece. Have a great weekend!
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!
What great timing! I have a cabinet that looks just like yours but its a corner unit. I’ve been throwing out paint ideas but my husband was skeptical. Then I showed him your picture and he is all for painting it now. Hopefully he’ll still feel that way next spring lol(we live in Michigan so I have to wait?).
Beautiful!!! Love seeing how you can transform some of the old unattractive pieces into a new statement piece of furniture. Thanks for sharing.
