Antique Sheet Music Flourishes

Wednesday, 9 July 2014


I am in need of storage in my kitchen area and have been on the hunt for some time for a small wardrobe to be converted to fit a space in my utility room.  Whilst browsing on ebay and items for sale on Facebook sites I finally found what I was looking for and purchased the item for the bargain price of £25.00.  I set to work having the shoe rack and clothes rail removed from the hanging space.  The  space was divided up and fitted with shelves to accommodate some of my kitchen equipment.  I painted the inside of   the cupboard and shelving with Autentico chalk paint in French Grey.  Three coats were applied then the paint was finished with Autentico clear wax.  

The outside of the cupboard was painted in Autentico chalk paint in Bath Stone and required 3 coats which were then finished off with a coat of Autentico clear wax to protect the paint finish.

I decided to wallpaper the inside of the door panels with a beautiful French vintage design wallpaper purchased from Ebay.

The final touch was to add a French stencil to the front of the cupboard doors in Laura Ashley Pale French Grey.

I am extremely happy with the finished product.
