I forgot to take the before picture. I'm getting rusty these days.
Anyway, I liked the cabinet and saw some potential. I pictured it black and white. I was going to change the knobs too, but decided to keep them (for now).
The vintage look seems to really be in these days. I love the "shabby chic" look but thought maybe I'd try something a little different. Crackle.
I know it's been around for a long time, but I just felt like I wanted to give it a try.
I painted the entire cabinet satin black, including the drawers. The crackle technique was used on the drawers. I selected a white background with black crackles. Love it!
The knobs are just the opposite.
On a totally unrelated topic, this sweet puppy was found at the gas station by my wonderful, animal loving daughter. He was dropped off there by some very heartless people. Full of fleas and ticks, he was bathed, de-ticked, dried, fed and watered. The next step: we found him a wonderful forever home. The sadness is completely gone in his eyes and he's like a new pup!! Better news: the people across the street adopted him so we can watch him grow up.
I'm so proud of my daughter, Taylor. This is the second dog she has brought home in one month. Both of them tossed out by their owners. She found a great home for both. You'll have to come back to my blog to meet the "other" doggy she found.
If you have love to give and a home to offer, go to your local shelter and adopt a dog or cat. There are so many homeless pets out there just looking for a warm bed, some food and a little love. I promise, they will be your friend for as long as they live!
