It has been awhile since I painted any furniture and I have missed it. With Braden being a baby it was hard to get blocks of time, but I am back! I found this amazing cabinet with great bones, but it needed a little farmhouse love. Today I am sharing all the details on this farmhouse cabinet makeover.
I was super inspired by a china cabinet makeover that Nikki Grandy did awhile back. When I found this cabinet I knew I had to try out the grain sack back. I am so in love with the way it turned out!
Here is what she looked like when I got her…cute bones, but very traditional. I wanted to give her a farmhouse makeover.
We started off removing the hardware and the top of the cabinet. Then we removed the doors to make it easier to paint. Sorry, I did a terrible job at taking pictures during the process! We painted it in a beautiful grey color called Steel Wool by Benjamin Moore in flat. The interior was painted in Flat Ultra White by Valspar. After the inside was dry I used painters tape to tape off the stripes and then filled them in with the Steel Wool. I used my favorite sander to distress the stripes and the cabinet after everything was dry. This is my favorite sandpaper and I used 220 grit on the inside for light distressing and I used 80 grit on the cabinet to distress the edges.
I wanted to give her a more industrial look so I changed the hardware to card catalog label pulls. You can find them HERE and HERE. I love this hardware because it is adorable and cheap! Around $0.60!!! Then I added vintage number labels to the pulls for a little extra character.
I love a cabinet full of white dishes so I had fun staging this one!
I need 6 homes to keep all the furniture pieces that I fall in love with, but until then I will be selling my pieces. This one has already sold, but you can find all of my available pieces by clicking “shop” at the top of my blog and then “furniture” in the drop down menu…you can also click HERE.
