I was lucky to find this unique, farmhouse cabinet at a yard sale recently. This cabinet would be the perfect piece in a farmhouse style kitchen, for extra storage or as a pantry.
The old latex paint was peeling and dirty, but this cabinet had great bones. I did not plan on leaving it bare wood, but as Mr. Rubbish started sanding the paint off, I loved the look of the rustic, natural wood that was being exposed.
The only part of the cabinet that did not have nice looking wood was the center of the door, which was a cheap plywood. To cover it up, I painted it with three coats of Graphite Chalk Paint to make it into a chalkboard. I used Annie Sloan clear wax over the rest of the cabinet to protect the bare wood.
I love the little bit of green paint left on the edges of the door.
