{ Rustic Corner Cabinet Makeover }

It's almost Friday so that means sharing a piece of furniture that got added to our house with a makeover!  A few months back we found a nice wood corner cabinet that was perfect for our basement dining area. It was much more petite then our white corner cabinet in the upstairs dining  , & with the lower ceiling it would work perfect for the basement! The wood on the cabinet was in pretty decent condition,but the shelves & back panel need some TLC !! I decided to go with some chalk paint in Old Ochre & some Americana Decor dark antique wax! I wanted something simple without a huge difference,because after all it was going to be in the 'Man Cave'/moose-lodge themed basement!! I trimmed the gorgeous scalloped detail in the front, painted the shelves,& distressed some areas on the bottom door ! I love the way it turned out! It's perfect for our little dining space, & holds my vintage plaid  dishes !! :) 

Still deciding if I will add a knob ,or not..I haven't found one I like just yet ;)
Note: I used a staple gun to put the other backboard up!

If you know me, you know I'm plaid obsessed! These vintage dishes my dear husband came across for free { garbage find} !

I love how the dark antique wax over the Old Ochre almost looks like wood grain :)! 

** I do realize this little beauty has a plate rail ,but honestly I didn't like the plates up-rite ,however I pry will move them for the millionth time again...Stay tuned in for the full updated basement reveal , & the dining space featuring this little cabinet !!!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend !!
