Chalk Painted Furniture Makeover | Wood Cabinet

Happy Friday, friends!

I hope you've been as busy as I have – for some reason, I have been in home improvement OVERDRIVE. I have such a love/hate relationship with my house – but more on that later, because the reason we've gathered here today is another fantastic round of Fab Furniture Flippin Contest! It's kind of my fave right now. Honestly, how can I be mad at getting to sample the best paints from around the globe on a monthly basis, all for the bargain basement price of simply sharing my project with you? Exactly. If you're a blogger and would like to participate, shoot an email to the lovely team at info@fabflippincontest.com. They'd love to hear from you!

This Month's Paint Sponsor: Country Chic Paint

This month's sponsor is one you've likely heard of time and again – Country Chic Paint. They're a company out of Canada, but ship to the US for a VERY reasonable flat rate shipping amount. Country Chic comes in a bazillion colors, and is specially suited for distressing. It's got a nice matte finish, too – perfect for all your shabby chic makeovers! The best part, in my opinion: even if you're a complete newbie to furniture painting, distressing, etc – there are tons of video tutorials on their website. They make everything really easy to use.

This month's victim: Boring old towel cabinet

This beauty has been living in my bathroom for awhile. I never loved the wood finish, however it was there more for form than function. I recently got motivated to make the whole room over, so it was the perfect time to give this cabinet some new life, too.

See what I mean? BIG SNOOZE.

Supply List:

1 Pint Country Chic in Hurricane
1 Pint Country Chic in Dune Grass
1 Pint Metallic Accent Cream in Trigger
Literally any piece of furniture you want to paint.

I chose colors that complimented my house of course, and the metallic accent cream because I was so intrigued. It seemed a good addition to this month's theme, “Bling Bling.”

They were nice enough to send a big fat paint brush, too – it is FAB.

I started with two coats of Dune Grass, then used a stencil to create stripes on the sides with some white chalk paint I already had. When that was all dry, I used a feather stencil and traced some feathers randomly with a pencil, then hand painted them with Hurricane. I chose a few to paint over with Trigger to add some shine to the sides.

On the front of the cabinet, I chose to accent specific pieces of the door and drawer with Trigger. The overall end product is, I think, really awesome. It brings in just the right amount of soft green and subtle shine to my bathroom. And you know, when a person gets ready in the mornings, the more pretty things around, the better.
