French cabinet with wire panels

Good morning! I'm sitting here so hot because yesterday we went to the beach and I missed putting sunscreen on my chest. I lathered it everywhere else because it was such a burning day but I must have got distracted and completely missed a whole section. So now I'm bright red and like a little furnace oven. Not fun. Although the beach was absolutely beautiful and we had such a lovely relaxed day together.  Love this sign - and there were no blue bottles in the water that we saw but nothing stops us Aussies :)


I wanted to share a lovely old cabinet I worked on last week. It's an old French cupboard that someone must have repaired in the 1970's. They had replaced the original glass with yellow glass with circles on it and had covered the shelves with red floral contact. Not a good look. I did a live video on Facebook on how to remove the contact easily if you want to watch it you can find it here.

I painted the cabinet in a custom mix of Fusion mineral paint - it's a very soft grey and the interior is a Dulux sea foam colour.  To replace the glass I removed all the trim and then cut wire panels, pained the trim and reinstalled it. Fiddly but it looks great.

I have someone coming to see the cabinet this morning but if you are interested please contact me.


I have loads and loads of furniture in my inventory at the moment - some really lovely pieces so I'm looking forward to getting stuck into my painting.

Have a great day
