Ms. Belgium

We purchased this GIGANTIC china cabinet two years ago...
It's hard to believe we were able to forget about it for that long!


It was also in pretty rough shape with chipping enamel,
yellowing paint, and busted out glass panes

Made in Belgium, circa 1950's
this hutch coordinates with the lovely dining 
set we shared a few weeks ago

I wanted it to coordinate with the dining set, but not be an exact match
(unless a client wants it glazed to match, of course!)

I really liked how crisp and clean the piece looked
wearing nothing more than a fresh coat of snow white paint
(Snow White from General Finishes, to be precise!)

It's a large piece, sure to make a statement
Simplicity seemed best

I could not, however, resist a LITTLE bling
via these gorgeous knobs...
I mean, really...amazing!

The entire piece is solid as solid gets
with custom glass shelves

The inside is minty fresh,
and each panel has lighting

Imagine this full of antique silver...OH MY. 

We also finished up this French dresser

For this weathered look,
we custom mixed a medium grey using
Amy Howard at Home One Step Paint
finished off with a white wash
and sealed for durabilty

The hardware is the reverse, white with a grey wash

I love how it turned out
So simple and clean but still quite interesting

These pieces are available at 607 Vintage MarketPlace
