A French cottage themed cabinet
I love painting wooden furniture’s and given it a fresh new look. Here is the before shot.
And here is the after.
And what a difference a light color makes. A shabby chic, french cottage feel.
After sanding it down, wiping down with sugar soap I applied the first coat of primer.
Two hours later a coat of wheatfield white. I had to add three coats of wheatfield because I didnt like how two coats looked. It didnt have a smooth finish and I had to get a fine finish.
I sanded lightly on all the corners to give it a distressed look.
I made up my staining medium. Half brown and half water and using small sponges and rags I rubbed in the stain. Applying lightly and gradually adding where dirt would naturally settle.
When satisfied with it I used waterbourne varnish to protect and seal the surface. All done and up for sale.
