Restoration Hardware Look Cupboard


While I'm waiting for my painting class participants to arrive I thought I would quickly share a recent project I did for one of my long time customers. Nicole and Paul bought a couple of pieces from me way back when I had an antiques booth at Balmain Road Antiques (now defunct) and was just starting out in my painting furniture business. I am honoured that they still follow my progress on the blog and social media and that they recently contacted me again to give this cupboard a makeover.


The cupboard was an old pine wardrobe that Nicole wants to use in her kitchen to store her baking ingredients and appliances so she had Paul make her some simple shelves and asked me to paint it similar to how I painted Karen's chest of french drawers. I call this a Restoration Hardware look.

...Well I didn't get to press publish before the class participants arrived so I thought I would share some photos from the class as well. Such a lovely day for me and hopefully for the participants also.

  3. It's gorgeous Fiona. You are very talented. Just wondering if the crown is original to the piece.

    1. thanks Tina, much appreciated. I think the crown is original. it was in the same timber finish and had very old screws attaching it.
