Cait from Little City Farmhouse chose our pure black, Liquorice to pair with the naturally beautiful wood of this cabinet. Now it’s transformed from average to stunning!

When I found this cabinet, I knew it was the perfect piece to make a statement! I loved the original finish on the top and it was in great condition already, so I wanted to leave that part as it was. I love multi-functional pieces of furniture like this – they lend themselves well to so many different uses!

This cabinet wasn’t in perfect shape. I sanded out all the imperfections I could before I painted it.

Black isn’t a colour I paint with a lot, but I loved the idea of a dark colour paired with the wooden top so I chose Liquorice.

I painted the cabinet in two coats of Liquorice. When it was dry I distressed it lightly around the edges and where normal wear would occur and then gave it a coat of Antiquing Wax. I love the richness that Antiquing Wax adds to dark colours!

I paired this piece with some gold hardware to add a classic but modern look. It’s always amazing to me how a couple coats of paint can totally transform a piece from average to stunning!

Cait {Little City Farmhouse}

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
