LARGE and in charge

I want to dedicate this post to Misty (Hello)! She is an absolutely lovely reader and recently she, along with her husband, made a 2 hour drive to pick up my Library Hutch. She emailed me before hand to show me this amazing china cabinet that she had no room for and I was soooo delighted to finally meet it in person when she dropped it off! Isn’t it cool???

Welcome to my fancy-schmancy indoor painting zone:

This guy was HUGE! I am talking 2 hours of straight painting. Definitely a record for me!
The details are so stunning in person, and the beadboard backing is unbelievable!
The bottom portion of the cabinet felt a little low so we added a little more substance by building it up on 2 inches of wood.

I think it is definitely my favorite piece of furniture yet!!

  1. I agree with you on the 2″ raise on those legs. It did seem a little low and you can't even tell you added it! What a great piece for sure! How do you decide what to sell and what to keep? I mean you have to come across tons of things that YOU want to keep, right?


  2. Is it hard to work with things like glass window panels? Do you find a way to take them out completely and secure them back afterwards, or do you just do an excellent job with painter's tape and maybe some plastic sheetings?
    Really curious/

    Oh, and it's just so pretty! :)


  3. That is amazing!! My father has always been in junk/antiques. Now that I have a real inspiration to appreciate it, why doesn't he have anything available for me!? Ugh…the search continues…


  4. oh my, that is drool worthy. I found your blog the other day, and read and read and read… so so great.

    we have painted peices before, but… never looking so sgreat..

    so we have already picked up a sprayer of craigslist, and a free peice…

    we move into our new home next week, and I couldn't be more excited to furnish it…

    but really this peice, TAKES THE CAKE.. its beyond lovely.


  5. Love it – and let me just say that I am totally jealous of your indoor painting area. I am seriously thinking about how I can convince my boytoy to make me one of my own. Somehow I think that saying “but Holly has one!!!” won't be the ammo I need :)


  6. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this piece!! The styling of it is simply beautiful. I wish I had room to put all this refinished furniture in my home :)

    I'll have you know that because of your chalkboard cabinet post that I found a super deal by me locally for a stash of cabinet doors that I plan on going crazy with. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
