A Vintage Children's Cupboard Makeover

This vintage cupboard went through quite a transformation.

The BEFORE is a solidly built children's cupboard... 

it was in sad shape and in desperate need of a makeover.

I spent Easter Eve avoiding cooking and cleaning and got to work painting this piece.

I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Old White with grey on the inside of the door and drawers.

When the paint was dry... and Easter was over... I distressed the edges with 220 grit sandpaper and clear waxed the cupboard.

The handles are all antiqued pewter to match the inside color.

It is a great makeover and this cupboard can be used
to hang children's clothes or add shelves to the 
closet side to create a storage hutch.
