The other day I showed you this little cabinet that I got at a garage sale. I just thought it was so charming and had so much character that I couldn't pass it up. It was $20 which I thought wasn't bad considering how much I liked it.
It started out a pale pink color as you can see here ~
I like pink in small doses but I thought this was a little too much especially for my kitchen area.
So I painted it aqua/blue. I used the same paint that I used in our family room.
Here is what it looks like now ~
I just lightly sanded it, applied a couple thin coats of the paint, sanding in between, and then distressed it a bit. I also applied a coat of paste wax to it.
I'm loving how it turned out - just so darn cute if I do say so myself! *__ *
I decided to hang it in our eating area off of the kitchen.
I tried a few different ways of accessorizing it just for fun. So many possibilities!
This is a spot that I see all of the time when I am in the kitchen - and we all know how much time we spend there - so I really enjoy having something on this wall that I really love!
So what do you think? Which way do you like it accessorized the best? Do you have some other ideas for me? I would love to hear them! It's always so nice to hear from you - I know you'll have some great ideas!!
