My obsession with tiny furniture continues!
Who remembers this little number that I picked up at a garage sale in early summer?
It had an authentically aged original paint job, but I just couldn’t handle the red. So I painted over the red with some Annie Sloan Duck Egg. Then, the fresh coat of Duck Egg made the original cream exterior look seriously dingy and yellowed. So I went over that with some Miss Mustard Seed milk paint in Linen.
I fully expected a bunch of chipping since I was painting over paint, but I didn’t get a single chip. When I say that whether or not milk paint will chip can be unpredictable, I mean it.
Once it was painted, I also added a tiny little ’37’ rub-on to the top.
I know it can be hard to judge scale in these photos, but this little cupboard is just 18″ tall. It’s the perfect size for placing on a dresser or table top and filling it up with some of your crafting supplies.
It’s kinda adorable, right?
I was contemplating keeping it and letting it join its brethren in the Q Branch (my study).
But I really don’t think I need another tiny piece of furniture!
So it will probably end up at my sale in October. I think. Maybe. Yes. Probably.
