DIY: Shabby Chic Furniture Cabinet!

DIY: Shabby Chic Furniture Cabinet!
I love updating and refinishing furniture!
 Check out this before and after!
I received this chipped, grimy cabinet hutch for free.
It looked like it belonged in the trash or on the curb for sure!
 I used this Chalk paint in Sheepskin to paint it.
It's from Plaid Crafts, they send me the supplies I love in exchange for using them!
Chalk paint is awesome...here's a post about it and milk paint
 I just wiped the cabinet down with a damp cloth and then started painting.
No sanding necessary!
It goes on thick and creamy.
 I only painted the outside edges.
 With the first coat there are still visible paint brush lines.
You can stop there and then sand and distress the edges.
 But I let it dry and painted one more coat.
2 coats helps give it a smooth and wonderful finish.
 Finish it off with some wax or just leave it.
Distress it if you like.
I upgraded the knob with a gorgeous emerald and gold leaf knob that I made myself...
full tutorial will be on my blog tomorrow!
 I love it!
It no longer looks like it belongs in the dump!
 Add some fun pieces for the perfect entry table!
