Spring is in full swing over here and our family has been busy enjoying the warmer days and spending much of our evenings and weekends setting up our first veggie and fruit garden. I’ve also managed to get a few spare moments to work on some fun furniture projects.
While I haven’t had the time to post on the blog as often as I would like, I am trying to be good about documenting all of our happenings over on Instagram.
One of the projects I’ve been working on is my April entry for the Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest™.
The Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest™ is a monthly contest where contestants create a themed furniture project with a little help from the monthly product sponsor. The projects are judged and the sponsor provides a prize package to the winner.
The April theme is “Pure Colors, Original Elegance” and this month’s sponsor is Pure & Original Paint. Pure & Original is a luxury paint brand that makes their paints to order. Their Classico paint is a chalk based paint that comes in over 120 gorgeous colors.
Maybe it was all the garden veggies I have on my brain or maybe it was my love for the color green but I chose to try out Soft Asparagus, a white color with just a hint of green.
A large china hutch that was one of my first ever refinishing projects was the perfect candidate.
It made the move to our new house with us and has been being used as a toy and kid’s art supply cabinet. When we moved the mesh screening was accidentally knocked out and the paint had become quite beat up. I never loved the color and have wanted to paint the cabinet a light bright color and clear it out for my craft supplies.
I left the dusty green color on the interior for now (I haven’t decided on a fun interior color yet) and applied 3 coats of Soft Asparagus Classico to the exterior. Removing the doors on the base really opened up the cabinet and gives it the much cleaner “elegant” look that I desired.
Since my craft supplies are currently a royal mess, thrown in tubs and boxes on the other side of the room and up in our attic, I thought styling the piece as a spa/bathroom cabinet would show the versatility of this piece.
I really love the new fresh lighter color and can’t wait to fill it up with all my crafting goodies.
I’ll be sure to put an update on the blog when I make a final decision on the interior color. Do you have any suggestions for a fun craft room color pop?!
