New Paint, Old Shelf
Hey my friends!
I’ve been missing all of you 🙂
Our internet has been non-functioning this week, due to the massive storm
that blew through Tuesday night.
Thankful that all is well here…and hoping this finds you all safe at home.
With a little time on my hands, I did manage to paint my old cabinet.
Well, it’s just a shelf now that I removed the doors 🙂
I took a bunch of pictures to show you the details…
Hope you enjoy 🙂
Here is a shot of the shelf before I painted it this time…
It was a very light gray, with the inside the original dark wood.
I was inspired to paint the inside of the shelf white by
(She has a gorgeous blue cupboard!)
So, I decided to paint the outside of the shelf a subtle green.
I used BEHR Spring Hill in a satin finish with a dry brush technique.
I used a basic white for the inside of the shelf, using a dry-brush also.
Then I sanded profusely all over to expose the layer of dark wood.
The green is a subtle shade, just enough to show up with the right light.
I really do like the way it turned out.
The ironstone and jars seem to show up well with the vintage wood backdrop.
I picked a few pink hydrangeas from my garden.
Hope to keep them alive 🙂
I used my old zinc basket to fill with burlap bags, feedsacks, and tablecloths.
The colors of the Ball jars are one of my favorites.
I also added my bottle carrier with an assortment of vintage bottles.
And an old zinc sap bucket just stands alone.
I am planning to try some wax suggestions from Miss Mustard Seed,
to finish it off and prevent scratch marks.
I am sharing my shelf’s new paint-job over at Furniture Feature Friday.
I am also sharing with Donna at Friday Nite Special.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for visiting me today 🙂
