Cottage Chintz Cupboard Makeover

While I went to work painting this cute vintage cabinet, I imagined it in a cozy English cottage, filled with colorful chintz dishes.  A stone fireplace across the room, a floral sofa, an old rocking chair with a needlepoint cushion... Can you see it? 

I'm afraid you'll have to use your imagination today as I was forced to photograph this pretty piece in my not-so-cozy garage.
Once again, Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan to the rescue in Versailles and Old White, along with Paris Grey inside the cupboards.   
Do you detect a pearly effect on the hardware and Old White details?  Yes, that is Pearl Plaster by Artist Enhancements - new product line at Camas Antiques!  Love it!  I will share more about it soon!

Of course the finish was made complete with Annie Sloan's Clear and Dark waxes!

You didn't think I would forget to share the before photo, did you?
I can't wait to add this pretty piece to my shop space this week!  I will be sure to post a photo or two of my whole display on Facebook via Instagram! 
Please have a safe, special, peaceful and memorable Memorial Day weekend!
Best Wishes and Blessings,
