I have been working on a cabinet for my daughter's bedroom. She loves to scrapbook, and needs some more storage in her room. We found this cabinet for $10, and thought with a little paint and some handiwork, we could make it work. I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, and finished waxing it today. I think I under estimated the work involved since it didn't involve any prep except to remove tape and fill a few holes. I think I may need to purchase the book on painting with Chalk paint, the finish came out pretty rough using a brush. But all in all, it will look wonderful in her room, check it out.....
Hubby added trim around the door fronts and the little decoration at the top of the doors. He loved it that I was doing the painting instead of him this time.
The cabinet was originally from a high school and was used for storage. When they built the new high school, they didn't want to take any of the old storage units, so we bought 5 units for $10 apiece and used most of them for organizing the garage, this one was a nice wood unit, so it will be the perfect scrapbook place.
As soon as the wax is good and dry, we will move it in. I have it on piano dolly, so it will roll right into her room.
That's it for now
