Blue & White Striped Cabinet


I picked up this small cabinet from the same seller that I bought the Old Ochre hutch from at a community sale.


It was just a dull and homely cabinet with scratches all over its surface.




I painted it with one of my favorite Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colors: Louis Blue.  Since this cabinet was so plain I decided to dress up the inside panels of the doors with Old White stripes to add some character.


I finished it by distressing all the edges and putting a Coco wash over the whole thing to create a soft, French blue.  I purchased several old, glass knobs at a barn sale and I used these to add a little more charm to an otherwise plain, little cabinet.


I am currently using this cabinet, along with the Old Ochre and Aubusson hutches, as part of my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint display at Loot.

I am OBSESSED with this hutch! I have been trying to think of something to do with my old dresser and this might be just the thing!

Oh, I love this one! I've been wanting to do stripes on something but just haven't found the right piece yet.

So much better looking now, Amanda! I've been on a stripe kick myself lately. It really is enough to dress up the doors in your piece, and I've used it on very plain furniture with no real detail or great lines to it. Love the blue and white, too!
