Pink and Grey, Painted and Waxed, Vintage Cabinet…

American Paint Company’s  recently retired color , CAMEO,  a soft pale pink,  reminds me of these

I’m not a pastel girl – but I am drawn to to these faint hint of color colors… I love Cameo,  and decided to pair it up with a brand new American Paint Color,  Tarnished Platter – a medium locker room gray –

A petite, vintage cabinet –

 Lovely.

First coat APC Tarnished Platter , then APC Cameo –

The inside of the cupboard received one coat of Caromal Botanicals Salvia,  a lighter grey than Tarnished Platter, but in the same family.  I chose Salvia because it could be left as is, no topcoat required – I don’t like painting inside cupboards/cabinets/shelves, so the less steps necessary the better 🙂

It took me awhile to combine and customize hardware that I liked –

I silver leafed the legs – they were perfect to dress up

and added a little more unexpected sparkly shimmer

I sanded the layered chalk/clay finish, refining and revealing until I was satisfied, then sealed it up with a layer  of my favorite wax,  American Paint Company Clear Wax.

Though I often recommend more durable topcoat options for surfaces that will be used daily,  (APC Topcoat, Caromal’s Reclaim Sealer, Beautiful Matte/Satin Sealer), furniture pieces like this one are perfect for wax.    APC’s natural waxes are the icing on the cake –

Something about the petite, daintiness of  this cabinet, drew me in … I wanted to dress up every inch of it –

I stenciled inside the cabinet, using a sticky size and cut glass mixed with shimmer glitter –

Every time I use a soft pink, it sells-

  1. Great color choice for this piece!

  2. Beautiful! I’m working on an old serpentine piece in the same color palate. I wish I could get more cameo. I just love all the unexpected touches you add with the blingy legs and pretty interior stenciling. Just gorgeous!
