Dont you just LOVE free stuff? Especially free furniture? I do! Unfortunately, that rarely happens.
But this time I scored big time! I found this in an ad. A young man was helping his grandmother getting rid of some stuff, and this amazing cabinet was up for grabs! I could not resist as I had been looking a while for that perfect piece for my dining room. And I really had the feeling that this could be it!
This is how the ol`thing looked like when I picked it up. It had been spraypainted green at some time, but the original color was white. I could tell because there was some chipping and scapings to show for it. I really couldnt decice it the color was actually nice or right down ugly...? What do you think?
Any how, I never let an opportunity to try out milkpaint slipp out of my hands, so I jumped to it and bought Miss Mustard Seeds new colors Bergere and Mora.
But first I gave the cabinet a layer of white, homemade chalkpaint. I did this so I could reduce the usage of my expencive milkpaint. Allso, It made a great underlayer of color for the other colors.
And then magic happens!
I think this picture was taken before the wax was added....
Perfect fit! And it goes great with my milkpainted wooden chairs!
No need to mention that I am ecstatic about my new piece, is it?
Well, in case there`s any doubt;
I LOVE my new cupboard!!
