Old Farmhouse Cupboard Furniture Makeover

This poor old cupboard has had a very good life. It has been busy living a cupboards dream! Holding all of my daughter’s clothes, games and books from the age of 2. She is now almost 21, left the nest and it’s been continuing to live the dream. But instead holding all of my crafty goodies. It came to us as a gift from a friend that knew how much I LOVE old things. It didn’t come to us in great shape but it sure served my daughter and now me well. Finally, after all of these years, instead of going into retirement it’s getting a well deserved Old Farmhouse Cupboard Makeover.

The previous owners {not my friend} loved it so much that they stained it with some kind of something I have not come across before. Including the beautiful old hardware.
Luckily for this little number, I have teamed up with a lovely bunch of bloggers who don’t give up so easy either on pieces of furniture. Be sure to check out below their brilliant Furniture Refreshes!

Each of the bevelled mirrors had been scratch quite badly and that weird stain was alllll around their beautiful edges.
So as you can see it was definitely calling out for some love.

Supplies needed:

  • Sugar soap – If you’re here in Australia or TSP if you’re in the states.
  • Sander
  • 120 and 80 grit sandpaper
  • Fusion Mineral Paint – Champlain
  • Paint Brush
  • Rustoleum Mat Black

 

Step 1 – Wash down completely with either sugar soap or TSP. This gets rid of all the grime and dirt. Make sure that the surface is completely dry and free of Sugar Soap or TSP. Sand away any lumps or bumps with 80 grit sandpaper. This gives you a nice fresh canvas to get your Picasso on!

Step 2 – Tape off the hardware and give them a light coat of black. Let dry completely and then spray again. Repeat moving the handle backwards and forwards to make it easier to spray the other side. Let dry.

Step 4 –  Grab your brush, paint and start painting. I gave this piece 2 coats and didn’t waste any time with distressing. Because the beauty of  Fusion Mineral Paint is that it has a top coat in it and the longer you leave it the tougher it becomes making it harder to distress.

So if you’re like me and love the distressed Farmhouse look distress as soon as your final coat is touch dry.

  1. Sam,
    I love how this turned out! You did a fabulous job on this cabinet. I so would love this in my home! What a great friend you have to give it to you!

    1. Thank you so much, Michelle!! I coped a bit of silliness from people because I didn’t restore it but they didn’t see the effect of what it had been painted in originally 🙁 but hey I know that if something can be saved I will but if it can’t I will breath new life into it! Thank you for your sweet kind words!
