While I was grazing through Etsy to look for possible images I could use for tags for the flea market, I came upon some fabulous gray tags with delicate soft scroll work in white. I fell in love with the tags, but unfortunately I thought they would eat up too much ink and toner. My next project to paint happened to be this lovely cabinet in forest green that probably hearkened from my newlywed days, and I won't tell you how long ago that was, but let's just say it's been awhile.
I sprayed the outside of the cabinet with primer gray and the inside with heirloom white. I watered down some gesso to soften the harshness of the primer. I'm not sure I would have used the gesso in hindsight, but it added a little texture to the finish. For the delicate scroll design I used part of a stencil that I had. This was a rather large stencil and I needed to fit the design to the scale of the piece. Then I used one of my Maison De Stencils in the middle. This was a quick and easy project. I took it to the Little French Flea Market. Many people commented on the cabinet and loved it, but they had no place to put it. Such is life. It's now in my space. The day I put it in, two people immediately went over to look at it, but it's still there.
I hope this little cabinet finds a good home very soon.
Thanks for stopping by.
