Art Deco Cabinet Turned French Country

We bought this art deco china cabinet a few weeks ago and I decided it was time to refresh it.  Originally we thought we would sell it as is down at FOUNDRY but it never made it to the shop and I was needing a little creative outlet!

















I decided to use a base coat of Annie Sloan Aubusson Blue (one of my all time favs) and then put country grey as the top coat just to add a little interest.  I ended up distressing it quite a bit around the edges.  He is finished off with Johnson’s clear wax. I just love how the blue pops out.

Introducing ART

Great details!

Original hardware

Love these legs!

See the aubusson blue poking it:-)

What's not to love! $275 as is (glass needs to be replaced) $325 with new glass

The great thing about these little cabinets is that they don’t need to be used for just “china” anymore.  Now a days they make great storage for books, toys, arts & craft supplies or even to store diapers, etc. in a nursery.

ART will be for sale on my etsy site and at the barn sale in january {read more about the barn here!} or you can email me if you are interested.

    It would be more French if you used chicken wire, gently sprayed or even lightly brushed in a metallic color to match your pulls.

    instead of replacing the glass…..just a thought.

    Oh I love how it turned out especially the blue peeking through and those legs. I do have a let fetish! 🙂
