Market Pantry Reno

When I first picked up this cabinet last year I was really excited.
I had wanted one with this type of shape for awhile.
It was $20.

After I had had it for several months,
it's faults became more apparent and I lost ambition.
I have found better items on the street.

However, yesterday, I had a change of heart,
and in one day, I re-did her into a farm-style pantry.
I decided to play into the rustic charm of the piece.

I made it my goal to only use what resources I had on hand...
Valspar turquoise interior satin paint with the primer built in from Lowes,
some leftover aqua paint, a glass knob from the hardware bucket, 
and cloth cut from some sacks from Farm and Fleet that I had in the gargage.

I just dry-brushed the paint over the surface,
leaving much of the initial brown to show through.
I lightly covered that with some aqua.

I lightly sanded the paint finish a few hours later.

We were out of chicken wire, so
I hot glued the burlap sack to the frame and covered it with 
the original wood trim to complete the door.

I left the bolder blue-er graphic for the interior
and traced a plate with a Sharpie to create the vintage postage stamp
on the front door.

My photos are also featuring
some morning sun, here.

Pickled beets, anyone?

I love it! Sometimes it take me ages for inspiration to hit. Your cabinet was worth the wait for just the right makeover. Love the color and burlap.

It looks really nice! I bought an old china cabinet two months back for storage upstairs and wanted to paint it...then the outdoors called and all the chores associated with that and I lost interest. I figured "in the fall" ::)
