and now that we are in a new space i knew i would once again need it for dishes. this piece has long been on my list of things to paint, i just didn't know what i wanted to do with it. because we are in a smaller space now i am lightening up everything, and this was no exception.
so, using paint i had on hand, alabaster from sherwin williams, i got to work.
here's how it came out.
the back of the interior has mirrors which i have never
been crazy about. i couldn't decide what to do with them until i came across some heavy duty, paintable wallpaper while packing. i purchased it months ago from lowe's because it was on clearance and i liked the pattern.
so, on it went.
the best part, no wallpaper paste involved.
i primed the mirrors when i primed the rest of the cabinet.
after cutting my paper to size i simply used spray adhesive on the back
and pressed each square into place.
it worked beautifully.
then i painted it alabaster white, let it dry, and came back and rubbed
some antique glaze over it and wiped it off haphazardly.
i'm pretty happy with how the whole piece came out. it's a real bright spot in the kitchen and is accomplishing my goal of being both functional and beautiful. i can't wait to work on the rest of the kitchen!
