A little while back a lovely client of mine asked me to make over a little cupboard that she wanted to pop into her bathroom. It sure was a cutie pie but sure did need some TLC. So armed with some paint stripper and some paint sharing How To Stamp An Old Farmhouse Cupboard.

How To Stamp An Old Farmhouse Cupboard  

This little cupboard sure had my work cut out for me. It was definately made from old fence pailings and was super heavy. It also had about 10 different coats of paint. Firstly I had to make sure that the paint was not lead based. So I grabbed a test kit from Bunnings to test it.

Step 1 –  Grab your lead testing kit and follow the instructions on how to test your piece for any lead in the paint. Luckily there was no lead in this paint so using some TSP and warm water give your piece a good clean. Then using your sander and 80 grit sandpaper remove any loose chips of paint. Remove the door from the front of the cupboard and keep the hardware somewhere safe.

Step 2 – Using an old brush apply either your Norglass or Citristrip thickly and let sit until you start to see the paint bubble. While this process is happening measure out the insert of your door. Then using your circular saw cut out the door insert and give the insert 2 coats of Raw Silk.

Step 3 –  With your paint scraper scrap away the paint. This cupboard took a few layers of stripper because there was so many layers of paint.

Step 4 –  Using an old rag wipe away any excess paint stipper. Give your entire cupboard another sand using 120 grit sandpaper. Wipe away any residue. Then take your brush and give the entire cupboard a coat of Cathedral Taupe. Let dry.

Step 5 – Give your cupboard another coat of Cathedral Taupe. Let dry. Pop some Ink out onto an old tile and load up your brayer. Then stamp away with your Kindest Regards and Rose Toile to create a design that you like. Using 120 grit sand paper distress to your liking. Attach the door insert to the door and put door back into place. Seal with wax using your wax brush and attach the door knob.
