Something Blue…

Good morning!  I’m just getting ready to take off to go fluff up my booth at Furniture Affair and deliver some gorgeous Ethan Allen Black Hitchcock dining room chairs I picked up last weekend.  Don’t tell anyone know, but I’m also going to make a quick stop at Starbucks on the way!
I love painting pieces white but the other day I felt in a blue mood and this cabinet was just jumping out at me.  My husband just said to me this morning “it’s funny how you can really dislike how a piece looks and then it can turn into a piece you don’t want to get rid of.”  That’s how I feel most of the time.  I get attached to every piece.  I painted using duck egg blue and then brought out the power sander to highly distress.  I then mixed a combination of clear and dark wax (heavy on the dark wax) to brush on.  Once it sat for a few minutes, I buffed with a smooth rag.  It’s now ready for my next Vintage Market (I’m stocking up)! 

Hope you have a wonderful day!

  1. I love this one! Didn’t like the knobs until you refinished…strange how a different color changes the entire look of the piece! Wish I was close enough to shop your store and purchase…you do a great job! Jana
