From Country Cabinet to French Cabinet

I picked up this slim cabinet at a neighborhood's annual garage sale. The adult son was staying with his mom recovering from surgery and accidentally bumped into the cabinet with his wheelchair. The faux stained glass broke, the better for me, as I am always on the hunt for a piece to doll it up with chicken wire.

As you can see by this picture, someone cut out a piece on the backboard, so off came that piece. Not an easy task and to boot I got a couple of slivers, OUCH!

A coat of Annie Sloan Ambusson Blue topped with clear wax and hardware got a spraying of Rustoleum Hammered Silver.


  1. What a transformation! it doesn't look the same piece.
