I shared my progress on the step-back cupboard yesterday and here it is all prettied up!

As a reminder, here is how it looked before.  Well, it had part of the first coat on the top, but this angle better shows what a mess it was!

My goal in giving it a makeover was not to make it look new, but to retain it’s age and charm and lose the pencil scribbles, grease spots, spray paint, and definitely the cobwebs and dirt.  It didn’t need an extreme makeover, but a little attention to bring out the beauty of the inset door panels, hardware and utilitarian shape.

Again, I painted it in a custom mix of two part Eulalie’s Sky to one part Layla’s Mint, both from the MMS Milk Paint line.  The back and inset panels were painted in Linen.  I finished it out in matte Tough Coat.

And isn’t this the greatest little chippy white stool?  I picked that up in the same shopping trip.

The cabinet and all of the accessories (except the plates) will be for sale at the Lucketts Spring Market in May.

Until then, I’m going to love on this piece in the studio…
