This little cabinet from the thrift store is one of those things that was intentionally distressed, but then had cracked and peeled even MORE! I had to sand it quite a bit to get past the shedding stuff.
The inside was stained and in good shape, so I left it ‘as is’.
Hand painted (NOT spray paint this time) the outside a darker turquoise then my current furniture shade of aqua.
Distressed a bit with my orbital sander. (I almost ALWAYS use my electric sander because my bad back makes hand sanding impossible. But a smaller items like this could easily have been hand sanded to distress by a ‘normal person’.)
All of the decorative stamps I have were too wide to fit on these doors; so I used a design from one of my sign stencils.
Then stenciled PARIS on the top.
Cute little cabinet to store some little collectibles.
