HOW I USED ANNIE SLOAN OLD WHITE


A CABINET RESCUE
I remember that morning, we were running late because
 someone slept in. It was one of those Saturdays I enjoy so
 much, spending time with George, getting out to all the yard
sales and finding other people's junk I can re-purpose into 
something new and wonderful.


Heading down the road I spotted this cabinet and my heart
 started to pound in my chest. Unsure if it was the fast food I
 had for breakfast or the treasure I just saw on the road
 side but I knew it was a candidate for my workshop. I had an
 appointment to keep before I could consider wrangling this
 thing into our vehicle, so George dropped me off and he went
 back. George is a mighty force to be reckoned with but when
 it comes to dirt, ..... he's a goner. Poor George picked up the
 filthy, spider ridden cabinet for me. He was a one man crew
 picking up and loading this piece into the truck. Once he
 returned you had to see his face, his dirty white shirt, and
 hear the story only he could tell,
priceless!







I cleaned, sanded, painted and waxed the interior shelves,
lined all the drawers as well as the inside back panel.
TIP: take the back board off to cover in paper
There was some damage to the bottom of the cabinet so I cut
 that off and added legs. Sprayed her with some lovely Annie
 Sloan, added some iron scroll work to trick your eye away
 from the building block shape, and installed 
a mirror into the door.
