::Corner Cabinet Up-Do::

PSSSST...I'm no longer blogging here!

Meet Elinor.
Right out of a Jane Austen novel.

Elinor's before.
The glass was missing, so we just removed the door to use as something else down the road.
Like you do.

This is was my inspiration...from Heather Bullard's home I believe.

I used ASCP in Duck Egg for the interior, and a DIY chalky paint color match to AS Country Grey.  
It happens to be Sherwin Williams Relaxed Khaki.

 I also used American Paint Co.'s light antiquing wax on the outside, Maison Blanche on the Duck Egg.

Left the original hardware in Relaxed Khaki with no antiquing wax...you can see the slight difference the wax makes to the color on the doors compared to the hardware.

Elinor went to her new home after being listed for 20 minutes...
Think this color combo might be a hit :)

She'll be making the usual rounds with her Serendipity House peeps.  Parties go live when the girls arrive!

Love "Elinor"...I have a cousin named "Elinor" spelled the same way! She'd probably like this cabinet too! :) Anyway, love the color combo and the overall style and design of the corner cupboard. Wish I lived closer to you. You are doing stuff that I would love to be doing as well...when I retire some day. Thanks for sharing with us.

Good call on leaving the door off. I like the open look. Love the color combination too! I've been working with similar colors but I'm wanting to keep the pieces!

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

Elinor had wonderful curves to begin with, but the colour combination you chose really made her beautiful. I love the blue on the top shelves.

Just absolutely stunning! I have a corner hutch that I've been saying I need to paint for about 5 years. Yes, 5 years. You may have just given me the little nudge I needed to get moving!

Love that, Cindy. It turned out really really great- xo Diana

Amazing job you did! Your dishes look so good next to the blue interior.

The only way Elinor could look better is if Mr. Darcy himself was leaning against her.

Julie @ followyourheartwoodworking said...

Oooooh! Love it with the blue inside, it looks just so classy!

Donna Wilkes said...

Cindy, I would love for my tarnished silver to live here.

Robin Johnson said...
