Finally done!

I've had this china cabinet sitting in my dining room for 2 years waiting to be painted.  It is by Drexel and I found it on CL for $65!  I bought it before I knew anything about chalk paint.  So glad I waited.  It was hard enough to paint not having to prime and sand I can't imagine having to do all that on this thing that does not come apart!  I used CeCe Caldwell's Seattle Mist with a little Annie Sloan's French Linen brushed on top, some light distressing, and waxed to seal.  I love how my Grandmother's china pops off the color.  The china I got when we were married is still boxed up in our basement - never been used!

  1. Hi! I just found you over on The Shabby Nest. That is a wonderful transformation. I love the color you chose!

  2. I think it was worth the wait! Simply beatiful!
