I know, I know… I’ve been gone for way too long! For some reason the last week or so I’ve just been out of inspiration and creativity. I don’t know where they went, but they were playing hide-and-seek! But this Sunday at church a friend mentioned to me that she loves reading my blog and told me I’m “so creative and artsy.” I don’t think she knew quite how much those words meant to me! I live to be creative and make things beautiful! And that was just the motivation I needed to jump start my inspiration.
This little cabinet had been waiting for me and my paintbrush to visit it for quite a while. I had had my eye on it hoping to make it look like Maria’s antique pie safe-turned soap display case. But the coloring was not quite right, even though I loved the soft gray on the outside.
Here’s the before (what were they thinking with the black shelf space???)
I simply painted the insides and wire door white, then lightly dry brushed white over the gray on the outside. I even like how the handles turned out with the dry brushing. It’s definitely not perfect, but it’s good enough for me!
