Latest Project – Vintage Pine Cupboard

I spotted this sweet vintage pine cupboard and knew straight away I wanted to create a heavily distressed look on this piece.

Frustratingly I forgot to take before pictures which is something I intend to do more of on the blog so you get to see each transformation.

I chose a true bright white chalk paint called Corfu White for the exterior and Surrey Hills, a pastel green for the interior.

Often when painting with white I need to apply at least three coats which is exactly what I needed to do here.

I then applied a clear wax coat then got to work with the sandpaper.

A very satisfying part of the job.

Also gave the lovely brass handles a good clean.

Here are the results and the cupboard is currently for sale £245.00.

Would make a fabulous linen/toy cupboard.
