Well hey there … it’s been awhile! I can’t believe it’s been over a year since my last post, and a lot has changed since then! On top of all of the other 2020-ness that everyone experienced, we also welcomed a new baby girl, moved from Kentucky to Tennessee, sold our house, bought a house, and started a new job at a new church. We are thankful for the new opportunities that God has led us too, and very thankful to be back closer to home and family! Keeping up with a baby is quite the adventure, but my sweet girl and I have gotten into a pretty good routine. Since we are mostly unpacked and organized, I’ve enjoyed starting to do some projects again. Nap time = project time for Mama!
I bought this cabinet from a sweet church friend a few years ago. I chalk painted it green and sealed with antique wax. It has lived in our dining room, guest bedroom, and two living rooms … (Have I mentioned we’ve moved a lot? Ha!)
I decided I was ready to give it a makeover, and I knew I wanted to use cane webbing in the doors .. I love the texture and classic style! Everybody has jumped on this trend, so it was a little difficult to find but worth the wait. I used some Magnolia paint that my mom and sister came across at a dollar store awhile back. Only a dollar for a sample size can, so altogether this was an inexpensive project, and I love how it turned out!
I put together this video showing me working on the cabinet. Here were my steps:
1. Remove all of the doors, drawers, and hardware
2. I didn’t sand or prime .. just wiped everything down. I had to do some extra coats in a few spots to cover the green but it worked fine.
3. Paint color: Shiplap in Magnolia Home Eggshell
4. I used a brush to get the smaller nooks and crannies and rolled the rest with a small paint roller.
5. You can soak hardware in boiling water to remove old paint.
6. I soaked the cane webbing in water for about 30 minutes – 1 hour. This makes it more flexible and easier to work with while attaching. As it dries, it will shrink and tighten.
7. I attached the webbing into the doors with a staple gun.
