Makeover Story :: Serving Cabinet

This bar/serving cabinet has been sitting in my garage for about a year.  I've had it posted as available for reservation, but have had no hits on it. As a result, it just hasn't been a priority - so there it sat. It's such a cool piece though with lots of storage space.  This past weekend, we decided it was time to dust it off again and bring it back to life.  Boy, I'm glad we did!

Here is how it looked originally:



And here is how it looks now:








I painted it in Annie Sloan Chalk paint - Old White and paired it with some Versilles colored accents. I then swapped out the original hardware with some fun new glass handles - they seem to add just the right amount of class.  :)  I love the end results!

  6. Gorgeous! I love the creamy white and how you used an accent color. It's so amazing what paint can do for a piece of furniture. I found your link on Elizabeth & Co. and am now following your blog.

    Have a great day!
