60 years ago I was five years old. My Grandmother had been newly widowed and moved into a very small house. Her Kitchen had 4 cupboards so virtually no storage. My aunt took her shopping for this china cabinet and I got to go along.
Grandma told me at the store. "Some day this might be yours." My parents inherited this when my Grandma died some 45 years ago. It took up residency in our dining room until two years ago when my Mom downsized and Grandma's hutch came to live in my art studio. It has broken and missing handles. And the wood was pretty beat up.
I like the character they add to the cabinet and they are PINK my favorite color. And they are one of a kind.
I bought some Annie Sloan chalk paint a year or more ago and so pulled that out and applied it over a wood primer. I can't say I really love the chalk paint. When I added the wax and started to buff it, the paint lifts off with firm pressure. I do love the look and how it turned out. I will probably not use the chalk paint for other furniture pieces I want to redo but that is just a personal preference.
What are you working on this week?
