it had me at hello

Remember when I found this cabinet on kijiji a couple of weeks ago? For twenty.five.dollars??? 🙂

It had me at hello.

Speaking of hello…hello snow-tracked floors. Nice of you to muck up my photo.

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the cabinet. I actually liked the green but I wanted it to be neutral enough for me to move from room to room.

It received a couple of coats of Behr’s Light French Gray (are you sick of that color yet?) 😉

Sorry, I bought a gallon and I’m trying to finish it off. Plus, I don’t think I’ll ever be sick of that color. It’s perfect.

I distressed it so that the original green would peek through and glazed it with Valspar Antiquing Glaze. Rusted iron pulls from Hobby Lobby were the finishing touch.



We’re one day closer to Friday! Which is one day closer to the Maple & Magnolia sale!

Don’t forget…if you are in the greater Toronto area and would like to come, just send me an email ( and I’ll give you the deets!

  4. Love your furniture, you have inspired me to star painting! I especially like the fireplace mantel. I too have used it as a decorative piece and not for a fireplace and it looks fabulous:) I will continue to check back often!

  6. I love it! I’m sort of jealous of all the great stuff people find on kijiji. Around here I have to wait for garage sale season to find my luck.
