Shabby Chic.


Some say “TGIF” to a long weeks work with an after 5 frothy, cheering to the weekend. I am cheering to the crazy person who put this gem out during roadside pickup.


I called in help to retrieve this phenomenal 1930’s cabinet stranded in Mount Lawley, so I could begin right away. Armed with a bottle of chardonnay and Nonno’s sander, Friday night was about to go to a whole other level.


The vibe was shabby chic, and what really caught my attention when sanding, was the green coming through in the border giving the cabinet a stand out frame. I knew I had to gloss her over with just a clear varnish.


I chose a 1970’s inspired green for the inside, from Taubmans paint called ‘spring carnival’. This colour choice although matte, brings a energetic feel to it radiating a positive warmth.
