Megan says that I always find the best china cabinets. I'm not sure how that happens. I never have anything specific in mind when I'm out hunting.
This one came from a yard sale. I actually stopped by first thing Friday morning. I passed this one by because the price was too high. But I stopped back on Saturday. This piece was still there and the seller was ready to negotiate - sometimes you just get lucky!
It had lots of dings, but was otherwise in great shape.
And it was the perfect size - lots of storage, but not oversized.
The color is an oops paint in classic grey - so versatile. I mixed it up with the homemade chalk paint recipe.
The hardware was just too pretty to change.
Love that curvy door!
I removed the grid in the glass door. It was funky fake wood and gave the piece a dated look. The shelves are missing in the photo as we were about to load her up and you don't want shelves flapping around in transit.
After two coats of paint and distressing, I finished up with a coat of SCJohnson wax. There are lots of fancy wax options that work great, but this one works well, is reasonably priced and easy to find at your local hardware or big box store.
So there you have it - a classic grey china cabinet. And another piece of furniture finished and out of my garage!
Winter is coming you know!
