I am happy to say the new dining room is coming together nicely. I am getting my Nordic/French Cottage vibe in the room.
I want to show you the cabinet done. Then I am taking a few days off. I have my granddaughter tonight for New Years Eve and then on New Years Day it is Terry's birthday and we are celebrating as a family for this special day.
Friday and Saturday Terry and I are going to do some fun day trips so I am letting go of the dining room for a few days.
Hope to have a reveal at the beginning of the week.
|Ok just to recap this was the old vintage cabinet from Terry's grandmother minus the door and drawer out before painting.|
|After several coats of paint this cabinet kept bleeding through yellow. Suzan from Simply Vintageous to the rescue. She told me that these old pieces with the old varnish need to have a coat of Zinzer oil base shellac before painting to keep the yellow from bleeding through. So finally after adding the shellac no more yellow. Yeah!!! Love you Suzan. I call her the paint whisper!!!|
That girl can paint the ugly duckling's of furniture pieces and turn them into beautiful pieces.
|Wooo Hooo love that this fit in the space. Gives this old piece some pretty bling and character.|
|Yep love that this old window will work for a new cabinet door.|
|Gives the piece a little nordic feel.|
|So there you have it a nice inherited piece that is re loved into a new pretty for the dining room re do. |
Have a wonderful New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
See you soon with the with the whole dining room reveal.
