It's been about a year since I snagged this
beauty diamond in the rough at my local thrift store! I brought it into the space in the middle of the winter, so I simply put it to use trying to ignore the "old" factor.
I snagged this baby for $70, but wait! It gets better.... it was on half price special!! After zero hesitation, I
walked ran to the register and screamed... I WANT IT!!! $35?!?!? Crazy right?
It sat until I discovered Chalk Paint! I realized I didn't to tape everything off, and that I could paint it in place! Score! So this past weekend I got to work.
First to start clearing it out.
Which left heaps of very pretty and colorful dishes on my kitchen table. I could stare at them forever, but let's move on....
I did bring in my painters tarp to protect my flooring. But I will be honest, I can't stand that floor and am anxiously awaiting the day we get to rip in out.
And I got to work painting. I used my DIY Chalk Paint recipe, along with Behr Creamy White flat paint. It took me 2 coats to get the coverage I was after. I finished it off with Annie Sloan clear wax.
I left the back blank for a reason... onto that in a minute. When choosing the color I was really wanting to go with a fun color to pop against my walls.
But being that I am a Fiestaware collecting fool, I chose white so that my dishes were the "pop" of color. However I did not want a plain old boring white nothing to it hutch.... thus leading us to the next step!
CON-TACT Paper!!!! I found some amazing choices of this fun self adhesive shelf liner, but went with a more classic approach. Also a neutral color to help with the fore mentioned "pop" of color.
Here she is! I chose to keep the original hardware to give it the shabby appeal.
Check out the POP!!! :) I'm loving every.single.detail on this piece!
