Chicken Wire Cabinet

Hope you are enjoying your day!  I’m actually taking the day off from painting.  The hubs and I went to a few vintage shops this morning then out for lunch.  We finished up by stopping off to look at cabinet and floor options for clients.  I could spend all day looking at that stuff!!!

Several months ago, we picked up a huge roll of chicken wire for $1.00 at an auction.  It continues to come in handy.  This sweet little cabinet had been damaged so Dave knocked out the centers of the door fronts and replaced them with wire.  It’s so fun!


And here it is now.  I used Vintage White and Dustin Golf Green chalk paint and then distressed with a damp cloth.  Once that was finished, I used a mixture of clear and dark for some aging and protection.

 I’m going to sell the mirror and chest separately so there are options.  This set would be great for a small foyer.  Or…have you seen all the little party bars that are floating around Pinterest?  Let’s see ~ Hot Chocolate Bar, Cupcake Bar, Banana Split Bar, just to name a few!  You could even use clothes pins to attach pictures onto the wire of an honored guest at the party!

 I replaced the original knobs with clear glass knobs but decided I liked the original better.  They are unique and match the other hardware.

 What project are you working on right now?

An Artist “friend of mine” just gave me a couple of boxes of unfinished picture frames.  Hmm…I need to put on my creative thinking cap and decide how I want to use them and what color I should paint them!
