This week I said a bitter sweet farewell to my transformed Ugly 80′s Buffet which sat happily in my dining room for the past year. It went on to start a new life as an office sideboard in a New England farmhouse =) Now that only meant one thing…out with the old and in with the new (well, new to me!). I set out to a couple of my favorite local thrift shops and quickly found what would become my next dining room cabinet. It wouldn’t exactly call it a looker, but it had great details and the quality was close to perfect…I had a vision, here’s the result!
Oh my, I think I’m in love. There’s just something so dreamy about the creamy white with distressed gray detail =)
To finish this cabinet, I used Annie Sloan chalk paint in old white for the base, then I mixed Annie Sloan Paris Gray paint with a bit of the Old White and water. I used a rag to rub the gray paint mixture on just the cabinet doors. Last, I used fine grit sand paper to lightly distress the cabinet.
Here’s a close up view of the Paris Gray & Old White detail…
