Vintage Cabinet Finished & A Gorgeous Chandelier!

Last week I shared that I was working on giving this piece a new look.

It took many hours to complete this beautiful vintage beast of a piece but it was completely worth it!

Finished in chalk paint and still considering new hardware for the doors and drawers.  the current hardware doesn’t look bad at all but if the right ones come along I will certainly let the owner of the cabinet know.

I was unable to stage the cabinet before I left the day it was completed, but I did manage to snap a few pictures with my iphone before I left.  I do plan to go out to her home again to snap some pretty ones of it staged but I thought I’d share what I have so far.

After…

Sorry for the poor quality photo!  What a difference the black makes.  It looks so much more grounded and richer now with the contrast of the black with the natural wood.

See that chandelier in the background?  I love it!  It is soooooo big!

The owner of this home bought it at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for a steal!  She has so many great things that have been picked up here and there… I could spend hours just browsing her house looking at all the beautiful and historic pieces she has!

Sherry's Chandelier 1This chandelier is so pretty all lit up.

I’m working on a few things right now and have made many great finds myself lately.  I’ll share more soon.

Sorry my posts have been so few and far between lately but to be honest … I’ve had a bit of difficulty finding my writing groove lately so I have been putting it off.  I find once I just get down to business and go with it I’m fine, but take a break for a bit and it is difficult to start back up. :0)

Take care!

Smiles!

  1. The black is perfect! and I’d love to see the chandelier lit up. Got any pics of that?

    • Sorry! No more pics as of yet. The owner ended up hosting some company following a funeral they attended the day I completed the project so I just snapped a few quick pics and left! … “Awkward!”… I haven’t been back just yet to do a little more with staging etc.
      Smiles!

Loving the perfect simplicity of our Balsam Fir tree 🌲 so fresh and fragrant. We are debating ornaments or leaving it naked... we are leaning towards leaving the as is. Maybe add a tree topper? 🤔🌲 #balsamfir #nakedtrees #fragrant #christmastree #antique #beautifulspaces #homedecor #thecuratorscollection #blanketladder #antiqueradio #cozy #farmhousestyle #fresh
So the table runner garland (which was originally supposed to be a wreath lol) has now become a large swag framing our living/dining area... it just made more sense since the table sees lots of use. Easier for cleaning. I think this works better in the end😉. #happyfriday #christmasdecor #mychristmas #cozy #freshgreens #thecuratorscollection #christmasiscoming #farmhousestyle
I started out intending to make another wreath but ended up with the makings of a table runner lol. I’ll add some more trimmings to it tomorrow. #sidetracked #freshgreens #christmastablescape #christmasdecor #diy #farmhousetable #antique #thecuratorscollection
These chairs ... what do you think? Paint or re-stain the wood? 🤔 #cantdecide #whattodo #antique #homedecor #furnituremakeover #thecuratorscollection
