Here’s what I’m working on, I actually started this many months ago and got a little discouraged with my color choice so I quit for a while. Sometimes it’s good for me to walk away from a project that isn’t working for a little bit
I bought this at a garage sale over the summer. It was ugly but I loved the way the drawers resembled an apothecary cabinet
The original piece was missing hardware so I picked up these white knobs at Ikea. One thing to keep in mind when you’re doing a project like this is that 9 knobs can get expensive.
I think these white Ikea knobs give it a clean, fresh look
I’m going to add these Tim Holtz labels over the top of the knobs. I found them in the scrapbook aisle at JoAnnes but they’re metal so I think they’re perfect.
I started out with the Spa Blue paint on the left, it was just to blue for my taste. I went over it in the Valspar Green Water and now I’m happy with the results. It’s funny how just a few shades can make such a big difference
I’m also painting a cabinet door in the green water to match, it’ll have a chalkboard center. Come back and check out the results later today or tomorrow.
A LITTLE UPDATE:
Here’s a small update with the labels nailed on. It’s dark and cold here so we’re quiting for the evening!
I painted a matching chalkboard and I’ll update photo’s once the paint cures
I painted this to sell but, It works so well in our family room I think I’m keeping it and who can’t use extra storage right?
I lined the inside of the drawers with vintage map paper of London. My husband added the labels, although his precision can be annoying at times, it’s perfect for this job! He added my birthday year right in the middle, yep I’m gonna be 50 this year
