Before & After
Deep Sea Green Coastal Chippy Cabinet
A big thank you to one of my ever-so-kind followers that shared this piece with me! She had seen it on Marketplace, and thought it might catch my fancy! Well it most certainly did, however comes with a bit of a funny story— the thing is, it looked soooo much bigger than it actually was in the Marketplace ad; so big in fact that we took the truck for the trip— which we avoid when possible to save $ on fuel! We most certainly didn’t need the truck, as it would have easily fit into my cross-over like a glove! WHICH I think might be a positive for many, as not everyone has space for large pieces, nor does everyone have a truck to haul. This one is a quaint and moderate piece indeed, and I’d happily deliver it to a fellow Manitoban in my crossover!
Selectively Salvaged and Loved by me
You’re gonna wanna get up-close-and-personal with this piece folks! I have most certainly become VERY acquainted with this vintage hutch over the past few weeks— a piece that has challenged and inspired my creativity like no other to-date! If you adore coastal, cozy, chippy and casual as much as I do, I invite you to take a very close look at this one! A swoonlicious colour pairing in a deep sea green and cozy mid-tone brown that swoons delicious coastal-cottage!

Be sure to zoom in— the chippy, crackled, texture I achieved when haphazardly applying chalk-paint over milk-paint is a dream!
