I’m in love with upcycling, furniture makeovers and chalk paint!

Our neighbor came over one day and asked to borrow an axe.  Because he is not the wood splitting type, I had to inquire.  He informed me that he was going to chop down a large corner unit because they no longer wanted it.  Of course I had to have it. After deciding where it was going to go, the makeover comensed. 

  

 
After stripping off the doors, hardware, glass inserts and embellishments, it was ready for transformation. 

 
 
I painted it with Annie Sloan old white chalk paint, then coated it with dark wax to give it the antique look.  I wanted to match the sides with another piece I have so I found metal decorative sheets on Amazon and cut them to fit the sides. (With plenty left over for other projects) 
 
Did I mention it has a light? 

  
I decided I did not like the antiquing inside so I repainted it white.
