Meet Stephanie of The Shabby Chic Girl. She gives Stephanie(s) a good name. Oh, and that Stephenie Meyer lady who wrote those vampire books. She did a lot for us with her contributions. Though I don't understand why her name is spelled different than ours. However, if she can produce a piece of furniture she has flipped, we'll let her in the club, too. (Bring Edward though. Oh, and Jacob. New members buy drinks, too.)
Stephanie hangs with a generous bunch of friends. How generous? One of her friends GAVE this MCM china cabinet to her. G-A-V-E it to H-E-R!!
Stephanie took one look at this beauty and knew she could give that cabinet some love and attention. She took off both of the bottom doors. Then she removed the glass from the top doors and replaced it with chicken wire. She gave her a good sanding and then painted her up with a custom Benjamin Moore color. (She's a BIG fan of their paint. I am, too. Although, what's with him shortening his name to Ben? Have you seen his paint cans recently? Benjamin! Your mother named you Benjamin, not Ben.) Okay, Let's take a hard right and get back on that track we were on before I veered off. Stephanie finished this china cabinet off with a bit of distressing and a good waxing.
Let's take a look at this lovely china cabinet now...
And a closer look at the lower section...(I hope that's flour in that jar.)
Awesomely awesome if you ask me! I bet you want to buy it now, don't you? Too late! It's been sold and is resting comfortably in it's new home where it is adored daily.
You can find The Shabby Chic Girl at Ginger & Spice Marketplace in Walkersville, Maryland. To follow along with the adventures of this Stephanie check out her Facebook Page The Shabby Chic Girl. Her enthusiasm will grab you and her furniture and findings will convince you to stick around. Now, get over there and let her know you saw her on Furniture Flippin'!
Thanks so much Stephanie for sharing your unbelievably cool furniture flip! And for not shaming the rest of us Stephanie's. Remember, with great power comes great responsibility. (So says Spiderman's Uncle Ben. Not to be confused with the Uncle Ben from Uncle Ben's rice. Nor with Ben formerly known as Benjamin Moore. Although I'm sure he was somebody's uncle, too, just not Peter Parker's. Three totally different people.)
Get your flip in people! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . If you don't, I'll show up at your door with my cell phone and starting snapping pics. Or my neighbor will. She has a real camera. Mine broke.
