This weekend I decided to set to work on my Gina's Designs Curio Cabinet. I knew when I
I initially painted it ivory, thinking I would distress it and then when it was over it looked good but so plain. So then I chose to cover it with designer paper- Crate Paper. Then I started painting the doors and detailed areas as the ivory didn't work with the paper. I guess my goal was a little old fashioned cabinet sitting in a dining room somewhere. So I thought, what else would be in that dining room? What about a chandelier?
I painted the chandelier with some adirondeck paints in pool and then I covered the entire thing with some glitter and added a bow. It really does look pretty on the side. And what else was in grandma's dining room...... a bird cage of course.
What do you think? I was thrilled that I could paint all these items to match this awesome paper. I then wanted to add a few little trinkets inside of the cabinet. Now as you can see I have a little wreath hanging on the front (in honor of the season coming up). But when you open the door- just a few little jars and platters.
I used a few little glass jars on the inside along with making a few little platters or layered items to represent some little trinkets inside the cabinet. I had a few little spools and some beaded pins. I just thought vintage would work best.
I do hope you enjoyed this project and remember you can get it at Gina's Designs!
