This is on old china cabinet my mom used when I was a little girl....yes, that has been looong time ago. HA! I had told her years ago when she got ready to dispose of it ....I wanted it.
She gave it to me about 2 months ago.
I sanded it down and painted it black. I tried to spray paint it but just could not get the look I wanted. After sanding, I painted two coats of satin Behr black paint. When it dried, I used sand paper on the edges to give it a worn look. The handles and pulls were changed to a silver nichol finish. I tried to take better pictures, but just couldn't get the lighting correct.
I am using it in my sewing room to store my fabric stash. Tell me what you think. Do you have any suggestions or ways I could have restored it any better?
Today I put up the Christmas tree hoping it would "get me in the Christmas mood"....I am trying anyway....later.
I did not give up--just forgot
