I have this 1980s golden oak corner curio cabinet... I like the leaded glass and the fact that it has a light and all the glass shelves are here... Im trying out our new paint line Old Town Paints. It is AWESOME!!! No prep needed... just clean and dry your piece and paint away! I did the interior with just a little 4 oz jar... the paint goes a long way! They have an great bees wax finish that gives it a wonderful had rubbed glow.

this is the first coat...

The table on the bottom is a WRECK!!!! its wobbly, the top layer of wood is coming off the top. So... while I wait fir the yellow table to dry I will take my screw gun to it and get the legs stabilized and sand down the top so I can paint it!
I got out a little .50 'oops' paint from home depot... a pretty aqua green... I have a bunch of dark brown and chipped stuff that Im going to dry brush to give them new life...
At the end of the day, that bottom table was ready for paint so I gave it the same aqua green. Forgot to take a picture.

I always have to wait for paint to dry so I need to have another project lined up! today I used some old legs and a old brief case to make a little table...Cute right! It just took a few minutes!
|1.00 at the flea market!|
|5.00 at a yard sale|
|2.50 each at Home Depot... 16.00 investment|
|my favorite tool!|
|screw the plates to the bottom of the brief case|
|screw the legs into the plates|
|tada!!! I will sell this at the boutique for 35.00|
|all of this thread came out of storage lockers!!! I finally got it |
all in one place. I wont need to buy thread for months!
|I think this is all of the ribbon... it was scattered |
all over the warehouse!
OK so here is what I did today!
I have this big stack of cabinet doors... 16 to be exact! today I started on some chalk boards.
I bought these doors for a 1.00 each at our fabulous county dump! They have the 'last chance mercantile' where they sell furniture, building supplies, etc....
I painted 5 of these today!
|clean it really good. I use spic and span ...|
|You can spray or bush the chalkboard paint on.|
|It takes a few coats... I love my trigger attachment... |
you can get it wherever you buy your paint
|Once the black paint is dry you can paint the frame. |
I used Any Sloan paint for this one....
|OK Paint is drying... I will go work on my sewing room for a while...|
its a mess!

|the empty and messy 'showroom'|
