It's so much fun to find old pieces and imagine the history behind them. Some painters say that their furniture projects "speak" to them. Others make up stories about their treasures to make it interesting! Do your projects speak to you?
This old cabinet is by Silverstone and was completely empty(no radio or speakers). It had been painted in a very popular green antiquing kit. I wanted a color that would brighten and make it cheerful. With that in mind I used Miss Mustard Seed's Mustard Yellow and added stenciled burlap for the doors. In my mind I could see this old cabinet as a cute coffee bar or a small accent piece in any home.
I lightly sanded with a sanding block, removed the doors and hardware, and painted two coats of Mustard Yellow. I painted the hardware with Typewriter black by Miss Mustard Seed to give a little depth. I love that I can paint the hardware with the milk paint to give it a newer look.
