I’m super excited about this antique cabinet I found last Friday at a moving sale. It was in pretty rough shape so I got it for a whopping $20! The glass in the door was falling out, the bottom front had been chewed up by a dog and the side was chipped up as well.
I’ve been referring to the cabinet as a “she” because she’s just so pretty. A diamond in the rough, but I knew all she needed was a little make up to cover those blemishes and she would be beautiful again. 💄💋 A friend commented that she had great legs and I would agree! Even in old age this girl has kept some smoken hot legs! 😆
I wanted to give her a feminine, chippy look in an antiqued blush pink finish. I whipped out my SaltWash supply, paint brush, metal spatula/scraper, stir stick, mixing jar, Valspar antiquing glaze, a left over sample of Sherwin Williams agreeable grey paint, and my 4 Valspar pink paint samples I bought at Lowes (using my Buy 1 Get 1 Free coupons). 🙌🏼🙌🏼
- Soft Pink
- Cashmere Pink
- Field of Flowe
Then I mixed up some Agreeable Grey paint with the SaltWash to a thick paste consistency and slapped it on with my paint stick.
I layered it on pretty thick right here to cover up where the wood was chipped off to help build it back up to a flat surface.
Then after letting it dry to a chalky, (but not completely dry), I scraped it up a bit to make it chippy and reveal some of the wood again……
I decided this wasn’t quite the pink I was going for so I mixed up the Field of Flowers paint and SaltWash.
Let it dry to a chalky, almost dry stage and began scraping again using my metal spatula/scraper.
