My Painted Wood Wine Cabinet
(A girl has to support her habit ya know)
As you may have noticed, our home is a revolving door of furniture and fun. However, once in a slightly tinted blue moon I come across some keepers like this cabinet (and Tim).
I actually got this wine cabinet about 4 1/2 years ago and believe it or not it is STILL living in our home! It appeared in a few posts about my dining room without me actually telling you about it’s story – so here it is in all of it’s glory!
I bought this wine cabinet off of an elderly client of mine who’d built it himself. The minute I saw it in his basement my want-o-meter shot through the roof and I almost slipped in my drool. I wasn’t uber happy with the stain, so I decided to give it the ole 1-2-3 and painted it black and distressed it (please don’t tell him, older men tend to have conniptions when I paint wood furniture.)
It was easy to prep as it was a water based stain and had a very…dry…finish. All it took was some dusting off and I was good to go with my old stand-by Behr Ultra in Black.
It started it’s life as a feature piece in my cream phase (shown above)…which was way too boring for me (although those chairs were epically comfortable…ya, I sold ’em).
Next, we moved onto the cream and rust phase…
The rust phase definitely lasted the longest as the rich warmth of Benjamin Moore Tawny Rose 2173-20 satisfied many of my colour urges.
It ALSO survived a short stint in the navy blue phase – which I don’t have photos of…it was that short.
From there, it moved locations ENTIRELY into our new home!
It is currently living in our family room, right next to my bad-ass sliding barn door, HOWEVER, it is looking for a new home so if you’re interested, let me know (nothing lasts forever you know – wink wink).
So what do you think? Still think I’m crazy for painting solid wood pieces? If you like what you’ve read, please consider subscribing for quasi-weekly updates!
