Abbey from Painted Home Goods brightened this vintage cabinet with Lazy Linen and new knobs.

 

I fell in love the moment I saw this sweet vintage cabinet. It didn’t need any repairs which is always a plus.

The inside was a garish red that I quickly changed with Valspar Devine Color spray paint. If you know me you know I do not like using spray paint but this brand was the best I’ve ever used (very affordable, too!) and made the tedious job of painting the interior go by so quickly.

After trying out 2 other colors that just weren’t quite right, I settled on Country Chic Paint in “Lazy Linen”. That’s one of the things I love about chalk paint; if you don’t like a color it’s no big deal and not much time wasted to just paint over it without needing to strip or sand. I distressed after one coat and added new knobs. “Lazy Linen” is the perfect blend of cool white and the palest of grays, just what I wanted.

As a mom to twin boys, I am always busy. Twice the fun, twice the work! My Twin Tornadoes and salvaging neglected furniture are my passions. If a twin mom in a small apartment can fix up and paint furniture, so can you! In today’s throw-away culture and tendency towards cheaply made, mass produced home goods, I seek to provide something different, something unique. Bringing new life to discarded finds is my way of contributing to the responsible thrifting counterculture that has become a growing trend. When shopping with PaintedHomeGoods you can feel good about what you buy. Enjoy!
