Chalk paint China Cabinet

Hello There Everyone! 
First of all i want to give a Great Big Shout Out to Elizabeth & Co for featuring my Rag A Muffin Wreath!!!

How awesome is that?! It completly made my day I haven't stoped smiling since I found out! Thank You so much Elizabeth & Co.!!!
 If you follow me on facebook ya might have already seen my china cabinet. Sure wish i had some before pictures but im sure you can imagine it. It wasn't to funky when i got it just ya know that boring 70's style dreary brown~blah.

 I hit the jackpot not too long ago at the Thrift store ~ for no reason other than it was my lucky day , all furniture was 50% off! And they had really cool stuff! Usually its hit or miss (often miss for me) but nonetheless there is this incredible urge to pop in every time i drive by a thrift store. Well thank goodness i did that day because im just loven my "new" China cabinet!

 In fact im loven it so much ~ Instead of it being in the shop where it was suppose to go , its found a home in my dining room. At least for now ~ Well ya know how it works... until something else comes along :) { Best part about this business is being able to flip my furniture OFTEN!}

I decided to go with ASCP, of coarse duhhh! I used Old White for the base and my new Fav French Linen on the drawers, crown, and the footing.  Just one coat of clear wax did the trick. It is as smooth as my baby bum! Love that Chalk Paint!! 
 Those colors remind me alot of Restoration Hardware ish. It neutral just matches perfectly with everything.  I adore the color combination.

The really fun part was decorating this beauty~ check out the bling! Hobby Lobby knobs YES!! sooo cheap i think i only paid $5 each ( on sale ) Now that im thinking about it i should've took every single knob that they had left ~ dang!

Filled to the brim with antique Ironstone, bits of creamy milk glass, romantic paper roses, my collection of white head vases and crystal decanters. And a few scattered personal pieces like my daughters oil painting of a conch shell, a rock my son colored for me years ago, my firefighters pair of vintage steins, and lastly looking down on us all , the Eagle left to me from my PaPa Goodman.
Isn't she Lovely?!

Have a Enjoyable day ~ Everyday!
