This little cabinet is my first piece painted with homemade “chalky” paint.
Cheap 80’s style cabinet, sold by the millions here in Germany. Germans like to call this “Gelsenkirchener Barock”. I liked the form of it though.
I like the designer paints, but they are very hard to get here and honestly, my budget is not allowing it at this time … so I thought I’d try homemade on this cabinet since I wasn’t that worried about ruining it. The story behind the homemade paint is a pretty long one and maybe I’ll write another post on that one (if there is anyone interested in hearing it?!).
ET sort of brought this cabinet with him into our marriage and it’s been sitting around the attics and basements of every apartment we’ve lived in for the past 20 years (too many to count!). I like the form of it though and have always wanted to re-do it. It just took me awhile to start because I never really wanted to sand that thing. (Now…I feel this story of the homemade paint coming on again. But really, I will post that story some other time)
