Shabby pantry cupboard

Vintage wood framed screen.  Michael built a tall shelf to attach it to.  You can see the shelf to the left there. 

Since I decided to paint the shelf yellow and the door was white, I needed a way to tie the two together.  My first thought was to ‘dry brush’ the shelf with white over the yellow.  After sitting on that idea for a few days I decided to add white to the shelf backing instead.

Using my regular acrylic craft paint and a sponge stamp with a design that looked good ‘right side up’ and ‘upside down’ I stamped away!

It was TOO bright and sunny outside (TOO?!?!?!) to get a good picture of the color once Michael finished putting the whole thing together.  But the white door against the yellow shelf was too stark; so I dry brushed a little of the yellow paint over the white screen frame. 

I DO soooooooooooooooo love the way that backing turned out!!!  Can’t you just see this cupboard filled with vintage TURQUOISE dishes???
