Hello There!! This is Meegan from What
Meegan Makes. Amanda and I got together and decided to do a
"Guest Post Swap" today. I am excited to be here and share with
you something that I love to do.
A friend of ours was getting ready to throw this beauty in the dump!!
I heard her talking to her son about going to the dump with this
ugly, sage green cupboard with black knobs. Without seeing it, I
told him to take it to MY house. He said, "You won't like it-it's
Well guess what? I fell in love as soon as I saw it. It
holds all of my crafting items. IE; paints, brushes, ribbon,
glues, beads, scrapbook paper, etc... I have enjoyed this piece
in our kitchen, in our bedroom and now our TV room. I have
changed the color a few times to fit our decor. When it was in
our bedroom I painted it silver to match what I was trying to do at
the time. Looks good, huh? Don't you just love those black
I REALLY like how the paint is crackled. Since, I have been
trying to bring softer, bluer tones into our home, like I have in our bedroom now. I thought it was time
to paint this, as well.
I mixed Turquoise Mist-Olympic, and Robin's Egg Blue craft paint to
outline the cupboards and drawers.
Then I decided to paint just a few of the drawers just the Turquoise
Mist. After I was this far into it, I decided to still leave
some drawers silver. I REALLY like how it turned out :)
I like the contrast and I still have the aged look, too.
Here is a closer look. See, you can still see the crackled look
without even sanding it.
Amanda, thanks for having me "Guest Post" on your blog today! I
am honored and grateful!
Make it a great day!!
