I purchased this adorable china cabinet a few weeks ago…I actually picked it up on the way home from The Girls on The Run 5 K held at Millersville University in Lancaster, PA.
Doesn’t everyone pick up furniture after a race?
I was drawn to the fretwork on the doors of the cabinet with the graceful curves…it reminded me of those gorgeous arched windows found on old buildings.
I really adored that 🙂
And although a larger piece, it was fairly petite for a china cabinet so I thought it would be fairly manageable to refinish and not take forever and a day.
I went back and forth about colors and finishes, but chose to go with a combination of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Shutter Grey and natural wood tones.
I used Bonding Agent as I didn’t want a chippy milk painted look, but a smooth finish.
I left the fretwork natural wood as well as the inside shelves and the wood was pretty amazing.
I used Miss Mustard Seed’s Hemp Oil to shine up that pretty wood…I just love that stuff.
It’s liquid gold!
I did add some knobs to help open and close the doors, but other than that, she was a fairly simple project and she turned out pretty fantastic!
Once again, milk paint for the win.
Have a blessed day and stop back tonight for the Creative Inspirations Linky Party to share all your amazing ideas and creations!
