Cupboard Love

Afternoon everyone.  No card from me today.
I'm just sharing a little project that has been taking me away from my craft room.

We nearly got rid of this cupboard when we moved house.
It's so ridiculously solid and heavy, that it takes 4 men to move it!
When we saw that it was a perfect fit in the kitchen,
between the wall and the kitchen units, we decided to keep it.
I have been itching to give it a re-vamp though - 
and finally got around to it.


It's taken me 2 weeks to get to this stage,
with 5 coats of Crown Antique White Eggshell.
It's not perfect, and the paint can chip slightly when you slam a drawer shut,
but it all adds to the 'shabby chic' look.
I'm really pleased with it though, and it brightens up that corner of the kitchen.
Now, I'm on the look out for something else to paint!!

Wow Caroline - what a difference some beautiful paintwork can make - you should take this up as a career! Absolutely love the finished result - thank goodness you didn't throw the cabinet away.
