French Provincial Dining Room ~ Part 2

Today I’m sharing Part 2 of these beautiful dining room pieces.  If you missed Part 1, just click here to view. Let’s take a look at the china cabinet.  It is also made by Drexel Heritage.  Full of storage, besides the glass shelves there are two drawers in the cupboard below along with room for larger items underneath.  I finished this piece to match the dining room table using CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk Paint Vintage White and Kansas Wheat.  Distressed and then sealed with a mixture of clear and dark wax.  I chose to accent the interior with a color similar to duck egg blue for a backdrop of prettiness.

Here she is in her previous life…yellow/cream accented with gold.
I love how the details really show after distressing, pulling out the vintage white underneath.
It comes in two pieces which makes it nice for moving.  She is sitting pretty in my space at Furniture Affair.

  1. Hi Judy, I came over to take a look because I am doing my dining set in Kansas Wheat. So far, all I have done are the chairs. Did you use Vintage White underneath the Kansas Wheat? Are you using the KW full strength, or did you lighten it at all?

    It looks really nice. Thanks for posting.

  2. Hi Teri…I used a thinned version of VW underneath and then full strength of KW. I like it when some of the wood and original base color comes through too. (At-least, on these pieces). When painting over stained wood, I’ve used just Kansas Wheat rubbing it down to expose the wood and I really like that look too. It looks very rustic! Just depends on what I’m working on. Hope this helps. Best of luck to you. I’m sure it will all be beautiful!!!

  3. That is juuuuust fabulous!!!!! I am in love with the colour!!!! So adorable!


  4. Hi Judy,

    I have this full set, all original, including the hutch that I’m looking to get rid of. Could you contact me with what you paid for yours and where would be the best place to sell it? Thanks.
