I finished painting the exterior and interior of my cabinet and had DH help me bring it in the house. I painted the exterior in AS Versailles with the Weathered Wood Painting Technique. I knew I wanted my beloved Duck Egg to be integrated and decided on this color for the interior. I took out the glass before moving it. I was fine with smashing it out, but DH put on his working gloves and helped me delicately remove it. We discovered that the way the glass was installed it was going to be tricky to replace with my chicken wire, but that’s tomorrow’s post.
Here is how the painting looks:
You can see how the wood comes though acting like a different color paint. The interior says, “There’s something different & special going on in here.”
Here’s the rub. I like it. I do not love it. It works and I’m happy with how the painting came out. It one kind of look that is lovely. I’m just not sure this is the look that I want at the end of the day. What I love is that since I know how to paint nothing has to be permanent. I have freedom. I’m going to repaint it. I think I just want more shabby and peeling and chippy. I recently painted a little cabinet using Miss Mustard Seed’s paint and it’s a completely different process and result. However, I think it’s what I want here. Maybe. I’m going to live with it a few more days and then decide.
Chicken wire tomorrow.
