As some of you know we moved into our current home last Summer after a year and a half of renovations were completed. Well, we have been finishing up a few lingering projects here & there as our budget allows ever since. I’m so excited to finally be able to show you some of our finished projects here at Curate & Co. If you love cottage style & fresh modern cottage decor you will love it here! Today I’m featuring a recent apothecary cabinet transformation I completed.
We have actually had this piece for several years & I have been waiting to find the perfect space for it. I think I’ve finally found it! I’m thrilled with how it turned out too. This baby has made quit the transformation. Once an old rusty beat up bolt cabinet in my father in laws garage, has now been transformed into a casual cottage apothecary cabinet perfect for our dining / kitchen area. So, glad my husband knows me well enough to save this old cabinet from what would have been a shame to throw in the trash. Who would throw this beauty away?!?
I have been dying to try out my new Miss Mustard Seed paint I picked up from the Ironstone Nest at the Main Street Market a couple months ago. So, I thought this would be the perfect piece. It’s painted in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Grain Sack & I added a little bit of Shutter Gray too, hoping to make it a little more gray. I also used the bonding agent to avoid the piece being chippy. Not to shabby for my first piece! I just love how it turned out.
All of my beachy cottage decor is from Dwellings & all things that I have had for a bit.
Below you can see just how rusty this old cabinet was when she showed up in my dining room one day at our old house (excuse the photo – this was pre- dslr days) & just how great she is now!
I did do some sanding to prep the piece and try to get off as much as possible of the old marker lettering that was written on the cabinet drawers. That is also why I did not want the chippy look. I didn’t want to take a chance on the lettering bleeding through.
