Authentic Country Cabinet

This piece is the result of much work!
Turned out so good!
 I love the color !
Let me tell you a secret.... I painted the body on a light green and at the end I didn't like it, so.... started all over!
 But another problem shows up ..... I didn't have the color I wanted!! And I thought....
Let's customize the color.... I got the original green, mixed some black, some blue.
And ... voila!!
Yesterday, organizing my desk, I found a color sample card from "C2" Benjamin Moore... is almost the same tone called "Churchill"
What a coincidence!!

Since I started to get ready for this work I knew that 2 tones should be the way to paint this cabinet!
And I was pretty sure the second tone should be Antique White! no doubt about it!
We got this cabinet from a Thrift Store here in our community, I don't know how much we paid for it, because we paid a bundle price with other pieces...
Solid Pine Furniture, Heavy, Original, Great Condition for its age
A look of my booth at "On A Whim"
Keep an eye on how many stuff ready for Holiday Season!!
But this Authentic Country Cabinet is the King!
Hope you fall in love with it!

Around two months ago we bought this piece and many others at a thrift shop that belongs to a Methodist Church here in our community.
This beautiful Art Deco vanity was in need of much love to became a Gorgeous Piece...

Art Deco furniture has geometric and angular shapes, zig zag forms and bold outlines...
How to bring this piece back to life without kill the essence of the style?

Here is a "before" picture
My decision was so hard. I decided to keep the round top in wood, showing the beauty of the grain honoring the exotic woods were used in the early years of the 20th. century...
 I painted the rest in Antique White, my own chalk paint recipe. Working with the distress to highlight the geometric details and shapes.
Also changed the hardware for the most unnoticeable set I have in hands.
 Remember: Don't kill the style!

I love this Vanity!!
Has elegance, style and luxury...

Hope you fall in love with it!
Thankful! Jacqueline

She knows about my work with furniture and offer to me a shelf unit she doesn't need any more!
Immediately went to see the shelf and I love it!

Later in the week, my husband asked me "What color are you going to paint it?"
I had no doubt to answer:
"Antique White"
After an important sanding, my own chalk paint, the work is done!
Beautiful piece...
Thursday I got it to the store, and placed on my booth... a statement...
Vintage silver pieces to show still more style in this piece...

Nine Drawers

My last creation a great dresser with nine drawers, all working very smooth, great condition and gorgeous design!

I sanded it and painted the body with Valspar Flat finish in a Tan color, intense and beautiful...

For the drawers I prepared three different tones of my own recipe of chalk paint in Antique White, painting each line of drawers from lighter to darker
The distress was the hardest part of the job!
Is a beautiful piece, plenty storage space, looks modern and eclectic too!
Hope you fall in love with it!
Thankful! Jacqueline
