Making a New Cabinet look Old.....


Making a "new" cabinet look old is harder than you think! After I finished the living room with a new coat of paint...I went right on to the kitchen and bathroom. It has been a while since I made any changes in the kitchen, so I decided a New "old" cabinet was what I needed. All my cabinets are white but I wanted to do something fun with this one. First, I bought a stock cabinet from Lowes:


After a good sanding....I tried a few techniques and tips that I got from reading Vintage Whites Blog and from I should be mopping the floor blog. Wow, they were so helpful! I stained the whole cabinet. Then, as they say in cooking... "I added a little of this and a little of that"! Gold paint, silver paint, some touches of iron colored paint and I knew I wanted lots of white peaking through. I even used Vaseline to a few of the edges and sanded here and there along the way.
Next...time for a little glam, I have a problem with leaving anything plain or simple, which can definitely can be a pain! So, out came the appliques...Now, just trying to decide which way the new appliques should go? I purchased these at RejuvenatedCreations on Etsy. They were ornate and CHEAP at $7.49 for 2!



Final steps: I got an old piece of wood we had in the garage and used it for a paint brush...How neat! They said it would make it look old and it darn sure did! The final color of paint I used was Annie Sloan's "Marie Antoinette" pink. Last...glued on the appliques and gave the whole thing a fresh coat of wax. I think it worked out pretty well, looks old and chippy!






Next...how about just one...New pendant light? ha ha...Here we go....You know how one thing leads to another! Oh well, my husband was so kind and got it put
right up in a jiffy. I just love these style of lights and had to have one! I ordered this one from LaurieAnna's Vintage Home store.



Ok, just one more thing...I took down all the various shelves around the kitchen before painting and had said- I not going to put all this stuff back up! Shhh, how about just a few shelves? Now, Ok, Ok....how about just 4 shelves? I just need to "edit" those collections...Thank goodness, we just put up a new cabinet! Gotta store all this stuff I am taking down! ha ha...I gotta show you a few of my favorite things:













I just LOVE this paint color! It is a very pale gray called "Dove's Cry". So, I decided...just one more room! On to the bathroom....more picks later.




I sure would love to paint my bedroom and one more bath, but....SSSSSSTOP!! Time to start working on Christmas trees for this season! I am pretty excited about them too! I have lots of new fun things collected. I have been neglecting my blog, but, hopefully I can get more frequent posts going through the end of the year.


Guess what "Ross" has out? SPOOKY......
