Yes! It’s finally done and I love it! I wanted it to be grungy and old-looking. I really like how it turned out but I think I may add in some chippies and crackles too.
I shared the before and after it had been painted and the progress I had made. It sat half done for quite some time but I’m so glad I was finally able to take some time to get it done.
I used Country Chic Paint in Simplicity, wet distressed, and glazed the details. I did a mix of both CCP’s glaze in Graphite and Smoky Quartz.
I talked about how I was going to replace the remaining glass panels with chicken wire and finally just did that yesterday. It’s a bit of a process and I don’t enjoy doing it, though I love the way it looks. Now it’s much easier to see my Rae Dunn on display without the reflection on the glass.
Fall is officially in our house so I decided my collection needed a fall touch as well. I’ve been slowly adding different wood pieces in there to try to pull the collection together on those tall shelves.
I’ll share my Rae Dunn collection in another post. I did post an update here, which includes some FAQ.
Now I’d love to find an old poultry feeding trough to sit up top to be my plate rack and would also love to find one of those long tin signs too! Liz Marie gave me that idea. Hers is perfection.
Here’s a refresher of what I started with on this piece. It’s really come a long way.
Another one off the list! Now, onto the next project! What are you working on right now? Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today, I appreciate your support! ❤️
