When I finally decided the cabinet was the perfect storage solution for my sewing studio I bit the bullet and bought the paint. Then the work began. The robin egg blue chalk paint finish is the perfect accent for the gray walls and white tables in the room. I love it and only wish I hadn't waited so long. Here's a peek of the process.
The cabinet has three open cupboard doors on top and three wood cupboards on the bottom. I love chalk paint. No need to sand before painting and it has a little bit of a rustic look to it. After the paint dried I applied a clear wax which tones the color down a bit and gives it a nice finish.
Before the glass panels go back in the shelves the beastly job of putting chicken wire in the sides and doors began.
I bought the chicken wire at Lowe's. At this point I was very anxious to get it done. Without wearing leather gloves or a long shirt I began cutting and stapling the wire to the back of the door and finished in an hour or two. Needless to say my arms and hands were pretty scratched up.
On To The Next Project!
