Happy New Year! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season - we had a lot of good food, drinks and merriment with family and friends. But I'm ready to get back to work and share a project I completed a few months ago.
I had this china cabinet in my "queue" for a while before I finally decided what I wanted to do it. It was a typical vintage piece from the 30's - 40' - in really great condition, but just needed a little "pick- me-up" for today's decor and lifestyles.
I took the fretwork out of the china cabinet doors. Not necessarily because anything was wrong with them, I just didn't want the complicated fretwork to compete with my idea for the interior.
It was in such great condition, it barely needed any prep aside from the usual sanding and priming. I wanted to paint it white, but decided to try a little more muted white in General Finishes Antique White. Several coats later, a topcoat by General Finishes, and a fabric backing by Waverly, it turned into this!
Here's a closer look at the fabric - it has a subtle blue and mocha pattern that is just beautiful!
The original hardware was in fantastic condition - just a gentle polish and she was good to go!
Lovely dovetailed joinery on the drawers....
I wish I had my camera with me the day I delivered it to its new home. It went to a home that is located in a Historic National Register Discrict. The new owner had just finished a gorgeous kitchen remodel and this piece looked right at home!
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!
