I love these cupboards… one of my favorite things to paint
This one was funny, I was in the middle of packing up boxes, preparing for the final week before our store move, and I dropped everything (you can see around me) and just started painting!
I wanted this cupboard to have a finish similar to this one I did a few years ago
I started with Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Colonial Blue – one layer brushed on, let dry.
I stenciled the front using Textured Basecoat Wisteria – love stenciling with the TB’s because they leave behind a thicker relief-like stencil.
I decided while the Wisteria (white) stencil was drying that I wanted to use the Wisteria as the top color, not the Parchment (creamy) as I’d originally planned. If I did that, though, my raised stencil would get lost. So I let the stencil dry then stenciled back over the white with a blackened bronze metallic.
When it dried I brushed on a coat of Caromal’s Chipping Creme (over the whole piece), and let it dry.
Last coat, brush on Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Wisteria. When it dried I sanded to reveal the blue undercolor
A few Swarovski’s to dress up the crown…
And it moved, officially, with us, on February 1st, to our new store location
