Amanda painted the entire cabinet using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White. She distressed the entire cabinet by lightly sanding it and then she waxed it. For the cabinet doors, Amanda writes, "I knew I wanted to do something special. I just didn't know what that was, so I put the piece aside for a few days to figure out what I was going to do. Just like most refurbishers, I save everything that I think I can use again. I just finished up a Mid Century Mod chair (DID SHE EVER!) that needed a new cushion. I had scraps of fabric left after it was complete. The shade of blue was just amazing that I knew it would be perfect. I was so happy when I started taking apart the doors and saw that it was made of several different pieces. I didn't put all the pieces back on to keep the opening wider for the fabric to shine."
Amanda used Modge Podge as the glue and sealer but once it was dry, it felt rough. So she lightly used a very fine steel wool to smooth it out.
Let's take a look at all of her hard work...
I think it's gorgeous! I love that pattern on the fabric. Somebody else did, too. Amanda posted it on her Reloved Home Designs Facebook page the night she finished it and it immediately sold. Great job Amanda!
Now, I want to show you a piece that Amanda has available for sale. This is what she has that I don't. Oh, if only I had room for it. Check out this chair. There it is before...
And here it is after...
Guess what?!? It's for sale at the incredible price of $115.00! You Mid Century Mod lovers better jump on that. (Then send me the pictures afterwards of it in your home. We all love a good "happily ever after" story.)
You can find Amanda on her Reloved Home Designs Facebook page. She is based in Volo, Illinois. Head on over there and let her know you saw her on Furniture Flippin'.
