Moms Sewing Cabinet

I've always painted, but usually rooms in my home, flower pots, bird baths or concrete floors.  I started following Miss Mustard Seed and loved her painted dressers.  I thought I'd give it a try and started with my Mom's old sewing cabinet.  That cabinet had been in her sewing room all the years I was growing up and she refinished it in the late 60's with a crazy green....
I was in the middle of stripping it before I remembered to take a picture.  It had big brass square pulls, just hideous, but probably hip in the late 60's.  I used Annie Sloan Old White chalk paint, lightly distressed it and finished with clear and dark wax.  Then stained the top with Miniwax Dark Walnut and added some vintage pulls I found on Ebay.  Love, Love, Loved it!  I was hooked!
Pin It

I'm using it in my bedroom as a nightstand and it constantly reminds me of my Mom, who I lost 25 years ago.  She would love that I'm painting furniture, she antiqued my dresser and bedframe when I was a preteen.  Wish I still had that old dresser, perhaps it will show up on Craigslist one day.
