After my first experience with chalk paint on my craigslist chair makeover, I couldn't wait to paint something else.
I started by moving the cabinet into the middle of the bathroom. Rather than lugging it all the way upstairs and through the house to the garage, I figured I would just bring an old sheet downstairs and paint it right in the bathroom. The chalk paint really has little to no odor so it's not a big deal to paint inside.
For now I only have two colors of chalk paint...duck egg and old white. I debated back and forth about whether I would paint it old white or duck egg blue. In the end I decided to go for the duck egg blue with some old white accents.
I had some concerns with the fact that the cabinet is not real wood. However, the chalk paint didn't seem to mind. It went on just as smoothly as it did when I painted the real wood chair...and it only needed one coat. Pretty awesome.
Once I finished the painting and the waxing it was time to update the hardware. My goal for this project was to make it "no cost". I already had the paint...now I needed to search the house for knobs.
Here is a close-up photo of the two different knobs. I may add a little white paint to the one on the right (an extra from my kitchen) to have it look more like the smaller knobs.
I really can't wait to hear what you think.
Also, don't forget that my Swing into Spring party opens tonight at 8pm EST. Hope to see you all there.
