Before I get into this post, just wanted to say a big “thank you”to whomever nominated my blog for an Apartment Therapy Homie for Design Blogs! I check my stats to see where traffic comes from each day, and was shocked when I saw it coming from that direction! If you like me and want to vote for me, you can, but frankly, there are a gazillion amazing blogs nominated, so go and just vote for your favorite!
Happy POWW! I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far and enjoying lovely weather! We have rain coming but I enjoyed the past couple days working outside. I have not found much to work on, so I went through my garage and found this cabinet we used to have in our old house’s family room.
We had used it to store games, but we had no use for it in this house. It has been used and abused by my kids and was in need of some cleaning up and repainting.
I decided to paint it with Paris gray chalk paint. I had a can on hand and thought it would suit the style of the table. I sanded it first to rough up the surface (I know I have said before that I do not truly trust ASCP to adhere as it is supposed to, so I always sand first), then I painted it with just one coat. After it was dry, I sanded it all over with fine sandpaper to distress and show hints of white. Then I waxed it, added a new (actually a true antique glass) know and voila!
It was such a simple change, but I think it looks so much better!
So let’s see what you have this week!
