China Cabinet Reveal ~ Miss Duck Egg

 TA DA! Introducing Miss Duck Egg! I posted on my Facebook page earlier today that I'm feeling like quite the chalk paint rock star after giving a major up do to a large vintage china cabinet that's been hibernating in my basement for a few years.


Here she is with out her door on. I love the openness to the cabinet this way and I can imagine it filled with all sorts of purty things. Towels, linens, quilts, china books etc..

 But,  I have a thing for swirls of any kind and I love the grill inside the glass door  that goes on the front just as much!

What I love most about this vintage china cabinet are the small details like the fluting on the frame, the chunky feet and the wooden appliques on the top

and bottom. 

 Another thing I love about his piece are it's imperfections. It has little dings and knicks, and even a few pieces that have fallen or dropped off along the way... A well lived life has a way of doing that to a gal, but Miss Duck Egg has weathered it all in stride. Sure, her hardware's a little rusty and her skin might be cracked and scarred but she's still got some life left in her...Nothing a little AS Duck Egg Chalk Paint and a little clear SOFT WAX can't fix!

What do ya think? Is she ready to rock n roll again?

She's got her bling on and she's ready to go!

I'm taking her to Burlap and Bling for her debut this weekend.
 I hope someone asks her to kick up her heels one last time!
