Antique Cupboard

I recently found this primitive cabinet on craigslist.  I saw it listed in my small town and thought I'd go take a look since I didn't have to drive far to see it.  She listed it for $250 which I knew I couldn't afford. But still I had to see it.

I asked her what her rock bottom price would be on it and she said $115.  Needless to say here she sits in our family room!  I wasn't givin' her up for that price.

She even gave me the gallon of off white paint she had used to paint it.  It had some crayon on it and looked a little rougher than I was going for so I gave the entire piece a fresh coat of paint.  Then I used Ralph Lauren Tobacco Glaze in the creases  It only had two knobs when I bought it.  They were wood and one was broken.  So I added the knobs I picked up at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. I decided to add different knobs on the drawers than the doors.
I love it!!!!


  1. Oh wonderful! I like how you did unmatchy knobs!

  2. OMG. What a treasure!

    LOVE that cabinet, and love what you have done to make it so awesome.

    WELL DONE!!!!!

  3. So pretty! and not over-done on the glaze. It looked like natural wear and age to me!
    Good job. (some pieces just seem over done to me) not yours {wink}
