This sweet cupboard was to cute to just walk past and leave behind at a garage sale that I went to some time ago!!
Firstly I removed the glass panel from inside the door. To do this I used a paint scraper to lever off the frame that was holding in the glass and then carefully removed. I keep these pieces of wood to use later.
Then I went to town applying three coats of my Milk coloured chalk paint, including the wooden frame that was holding in the glass!!
After that had all dried nicely, I then took to the cupboard with my sander using 120 grade sandpaper until I achieved the desired distressness that I love!!
On the inside back of the cupboard using mod podge I applied enough serviettes to cover it. I then let this dry over night. I did get some bubbling and a couple of tears but I don’t mind this as it adds to the effect that I’m after!
The following day I then sanded back the area where I had applied the serviettes and distressed!
I then measured a piece of chicken wire and using my staple gun I then stapled in place. I then reapplied the frame that was holding in the glass originally to secure any sharp edges and also double secure it in place.
With a nice wax inside and out, voila, a sweet Shabby Cupboard!!
