A sneek peak to ignite your imaginations.
What a beauty this was! Just look at it's brassy hardware and orange tiger-striped wood. Oh, and don't forget it's
beautiful floral liner in the background. Okay I'm not that mean, it just needed some love.
And here he is after that little bit of love. And yes, it is a he. I painted him a soft grey that I had leftover from a wall in my home and a toned down mustard yellow for the 'chevron stripes.' Now I quotationed 'chevron stripes' because that's what they're suppose to be. It was my first attempt, (I'm embarassed to admit) at trying the infamous chevron stripe.
I know I could have done tighter zigzags but I kinda liked the looser look. I didn't use any sort of pattern, maybe that was my first mistake. I just used my trusty frog tape and lined it how I wanted free hand.
I do have to say I like my non-perfect stripes, they're one of a kind and have a beachy vibe to them.
After some heavy distressing I sealed it with a clear wax.
Another embarassing fact to admit.....I finally found Oil Rubbed Bronze spray at Wal-Mart. I swear everytime I go there I can never find it! Well today Wally World did not conquer me, I conquered it!! As you can assume I used that darn spray and let me tell you, it was satisfying.
So there you have it, a few confessions and one little cupboard.
