For the past several days I've been working on repainting it for use in my studio. I'm loving how it came out and all the storage it gives me for old laces and ribbons.
Early last month I moved the child's size armoire out of my workshop for use in my booth space (Edmond Antiques). That left me really needing something to hold all my vintage trims.
Gotta LOVE Craigslist!
I first primed the cabinet with Zinsser Bonding Primer before giving it two good coats of satin paint by Behr (Home Depot/Soft White). I love this paint as it's not too yellow and not too bright! Then I sanded it down with my electric orbital sander! Gentle distressing with sand paper and a bit of aging with AS dark wax before AS clear wax was applied to the entire piece!
I love having everything OUT so I can see what I'm looking for!
Vintage laces, ribbons and trims...yummmmmmmmmmmmeeeee!
Old pastelle ribbon makes me swoon....
Can't let the day pass without mentioning the 11th anniversary of the tragedy of 9-11. Today we remember those innocent people who lost their lives that day and the brave men and women who fought to save them.
Praying today for peace for those left behind.
Love to you...
