TV, Toys and Liquor

Love the chippy!

I think we all had one of these TV cabinets in our homes. This one was my son's and it came in a with his bedroom set. By the time he moved out, he had already moved on to a flat screen TV, so guess who inherited the TV Cabinet? Yup. Momma.

I turned the drawers into toy storage for the grandkids.  The dish set, the toy pots and pans and the lincoln logs have been the three favourites over the years.

One day, I'd had it. I was sick of looking at the orangey pine! It so didn't go with my decor! Out came the Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Dried Lavender. I painted right in the living room, and the whole thing was done in an afternoon. Quick and easy!

As the paint dried, I began to get the coveted chippy goodness! I used a smooth plastic scrapper to rub off the flakes. When I was happy with the coverage, I finished the entire piece with Miss Mustard Seed's Hemp Oil. It really brings out the beautiful depth of the Dried Lavender colour, don't you think?

I created a liquor cabinet in the top section. The new rule is you can't have both sections open at the same time - haha!
