Jute China Cabinet
This beauty reminds me of a warm, delicious latte! I picked this piece up one the weekend from Facebook Marketplace and I immediately had visions of her re-loved in a creamy colour.
Since this lady was in pretty pristine condition, I was able to get straight to work. Chalk style paints require minimal prep, but prep, non the less. I gave this cabinet a wash with some warm water and T.S.P. (a degreasing cleaner) and a quick spray of Zinsser Shellac just to seal in any stains that might have wanted to creep up through my new paint job.
Once the shellac was dry, I was able to brush on 2 coats of my favourite Chalk Style paint, FAT Paint, in Jute. This true beige colour is aptly named. After my paint had dried overnight, I sanded the entire project with 220 grit sandpaper, to both smooth the paint and lightly distress around the edges. I like to distress some pieces to highlight details that can sometimes get lost under a solid colour.
This piece was sealed with FAT Top Coat, a matte, non-yellowing liquid top coat that provides extra protection to painted surfaces. New glass knobs were added to provide an extra pop of pretty, just like the foam on your latte!
