A Vintage Makeover

What a glorious weekend.  The weather was fantastic!  And, we were able to work at the shop for two whole days.  Project after project.  We love the transformations and wanted to share a story of a vintage cabinet makeover.

A few weeks ago, a customer asked if we were interested in an old Hoosier-type cabinet that, although salvageable, was structurally in need of major work.  This piece had been in her family for a long time but now it was time to go. The cabinet was definitely in need of TLC.  There was no back on the bottom, the shelves were unstable, hardware was very dated, and generally it needed cleaning.  Much like a piece or two we seem to accumulate in the garage and forget about.

Tricia went to work on the cabinet.  She put on a new back, glued, rearranged the drawer and shelves, cleaned, and fixed the top shelf.  Then she transformed it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  Primer Red for the base color and Chateau Grey over the top and distressed it.  It turned out absolutely darling!  It could set in a kitchen, serve as a craft center, adorable in a porch!  Come check it out.  We're open on Friday and Saturday, September 28 and 29.

Final step will be the new Hardware.
Hope to see you soon.
