VINTAGE CHINA CABINET


It's difficult to get good pictures in my dark garage, but you can see the before below.  Annnnnd, if you'd like to see where I found this piece, take a peek HERE.


With the door off, shelves removed and the side panels popped out, I started painting with Walmart's Color Place 'white' paint.  I mixed it with Plaster of Paris and water.  Look here for directions.



I brushed on two or three coats, let dry, then sanded with my lil Mouse sander by Black and Decker.


Next, the interior and shelves get 2 to 3 coats of chalk paint made with an OOPS paint in the prettiest shade of aqua.  I love it.....can't imagine why someone DIDN'T want it.


The panels painted and popped back in, AND the shelves are back inside.  Check the next page for HER NEW LOOK.



After a little distressing using my Mouse sander, the door is reattached.


Annnnd, I called her FINISHED.
Then, I've filled her up with lots of pretty WHITE milk glass.  It shines against the aqua color.  The color is MORE aqua than it appears here.  






What cha think???  Makes me want a room filled with pretty white furniture.  Someday soon.

  26. You got so many methods to hook up with someone on the internet.

    If a couple can kiss and not have it lead to sexual impropriety, there is no condemnation for them.

  31. You know and have accepted that he or she is prone to perceptual
    distortions and will have a tendency of over analyzing your relationship and finding reasons why the
    two of you shouldn't be together. Also, ask around for advice from others who have experience using them. Not only are Chinese girls downright beautiful, they are also incredibly sensuous, smart, and have an interesting culture that you will come to love.

  37. To a woman, time is even more critical than a man because we want
    to have children. When you=re at the PX, pick up a few affectionate or amusing cards, and then send them at random moments.

  39. The main point of difference lies with the fact that the Vaporizer does not cause any
    harm to the human lungs. Many Plains and Mississippi River Valley locations have winds from
    almost due north. Some special deals can also be found on the vaporizer at times.
