A few weeks ago I went to my sweet friend Meghan’s house to see some furniture. One piece in particular caught my eye.
This beautiful vintage corner cabinet. OK, it’s not beautiful yet, but just like Cinderella, with the help of her fairy godmother (me) she will be!
Vintage corner cabinets are hard to find and although this one had a few “character” spots it was well made. Meghan found this piece on the curb and it was destine for the landfill. So sad!
My first step was to decide on a color. I felt blue would be the perfect color for the ball so I mixed CeCe Caldwell’s Paints and created a color I call “Royal Blue”.
So here is the cabinet after painting, distressing and waxing. The new color is fresh and happy! The inside is painted CeCe Caldwell’s Vintage White.
Although the inside color looks nice, the white is sterile. Another custom mix (Grey Goose), and the interior finally compliments the exterior. Here’s Meghan, all dressed and ready for the ball! She is the “Belle of the Ball!
This piece would be perfect in a dining room filled with china, in a family room filled with books and accessories or in a nursery filled with sweet baby books, toys and clothes! Available at Maggie Jane’s Brownstone, located at 913 King Street in Old Town, Alexandria, VA.
Thanks and Happy Decorating!
