Maybe it's a liquor cabinet, maybe it's a sweater closet


I totally meant to show this beauty yesterday but alas my time grew short again.
My day job got a little busy already this week and I painted a little cupboard that needs to be redone because I hate it. Anyone else that paints a lot of furniture or even a little bit of furniture knows sometimes things just don't turn out the way you planned. I made a classic mistake and painted something slightly outside of my comfort zone and it doesn't look at all like I thought in my head and it doesn't represent me at all.
I kept asking Trevor over and over "what do you think?" and we both knew where I was going with that. Back to the drawing board el perfectionista!

I try really hard to abide by the if I wouldn't put it in my home (even in a colour that I normally wouldn't use ) then it is a no go. 


Back to the topic at hand. I won this awesome cabinet in an auction and knew that the dated finish would look amazing with the great details on the doors.
I was bad and forgot a before picture. Sorry about that.

You also get more sneek peeks at some stock for the barn show I dragged up the stairs to style this shoot.

This was done with minimal distressing and my greige mix annie sloan paint and would look great in a dining room or even as an armoire in a bedroom.
















Have a great day,
