Annie Sloan Chalk Paint China Cabinet Makeover

Since we bought our house one of my favorite hobbies has become combing Craigslist for good deals on furniture.  For the past several months I have been looking for a china cabinet that would give us some much needed extra storage and look pretty of course.  About a month ago I found this little gem.  Well, maybe little is the wrong word.  Anyways, here she is.
And I've been so anxious to get some Annie Sloan paint and brighten this cabinet up.  Here are some inspiration images of painted china cabinets that I found on Pinterest.


There is something about white painted furniture that I just love.  I have been looking forward to trying out Annie Sloan chalk paint so when we visited some friends in Roanoke last weekend I had to stop by Black Dog Salvage to pick some up.  I bought two colors, Provence and Old White and I got to work!
First we took off all of the doors and I started painting the inside of the cabinet in Provence.
Unfortunately I didn't take many more pictures of the progress but after I finished painting the inside of the cabinet in Provence I started working on the doors and the outside of the cabinet painting with Old White. And I love how the cabinet turned out! I was undecided if I would like the splash of color on the inside of the cabinet or if I should paint it the same color as the rest of the cabinet but I love how it makes the white china and milk glass really pop. 

Thanks for stopping by!
