This perfectly shabby chic green toy storage cabinet was brought back to life by Hayden from Two Paws Farmhouse with Hollow Hill All-in-One Decor Paint, Antiquing Wax, and a Beeswax Distressing Bar!

Sometimes in a furniture makeover, it’s hard to believe that the before and after photos are really the same piece. This is one of those cases.

Hayden wanted the painted base of this cabinet to pair beautifully with a stained wood top, so she started by stripped all the old layers of paint and stain off.

Next, she rubbed a Beeswax Distressing Bar over the edges of her piece. This allows the original finish to appear through after you’ve painted and distressed it. It’s the perfect tool for shabby chic furniture!

After painting the base with Hollow Hill All-in-One Decor Paint and staining the top, Hayden used sandpaper to distress the paint.

To add a little dept to the paint color as well as some protection, she applied some Antiquing Wax using a Wax Brush.

Now it’s the perfect storage piece for her daughter’s bedroom!

Hayden {Two Paws Farmhouse}

My name is Hayden. I’m a small town girl nestled in the town of Paw Paw, Michigan. I am married to the love of my life and we are blessed with a baby girl. My husband and I bought our old farmhouse in June of 2015 and slowly but surely have been working on fixing it up and turning it into the home of our dreams. Home design and decor has always been a passion of mine and it is through home decor that I have learned to express myself. It is my hope that we can create a home that we are happy to share with everyone. I love to scour vintage markets, antique storefronts, garage sales, and your local thrift shops for my next great find. I enjoy turning someone trash into a treasure that I can display in my home.
