Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Strikes yet again…..

I have been looking at these two cabinets for a while, and thinking of painting them.  I have a tendency to want everything to be my favorite color of blue…. So I decided to change things up a bit and make the accents in the Dining Room a pale yellow.  I went with Annie Sloan Arles…. I toned it down a bit with  cream and loved the results.

Here is before…….


Before and Below are the After Shots

I am thinking in the picture below I need to tone down the shelf on the wall!  I may be distressing it with some ASCP Cream…. and the mirror ?  I may paint the mirror in cream?  I have not decided yet.  and I am thinking a skinny bench to set between those two cabinets?  Fluffing that is what I do, I fluff my nest…...

I added some fabric inside the back wall of the cabinet ( I just stapled it on!)

And a better look at the plates that will replace the ones on the wall as soon as the Disc Hangers arrive!

 and another chevron runner I whipped up…..

The shelf below is distressed with the previous shade of cream showing through!

With the night lighting not sure you can see the color very well…..

 Too many days of snow….. makes me want to paint something!



  1. I have just discovered your blog and ummmm....I totally think we need to be friends! ;) I'm definitely adding some fabric to the back of my glass cabinet!
