  1. Wow! I’ve been strolling around your blog for a while, nearly commenting several times about our similar styles. I have wood planks above my fireplace and a gray sectional. I found your site after searching for DIY artwork on Pinterest. I love the large yellow frame with the gray striped artwork in your hall. Anyway, I have the exact same china cabinet. I found it on Craigslist for $40!!! Mine was wood at the time I purchased, or I guess wood tone or veneer. I also painted mine white.
    Currently, I have the top and bottom in two separate rooms. I put feet on the bottom of the top and am using it as a shallow cabinet in my sewing room. I added a beadboard back painted duck egg blue.
    I LOVE the curtains you have in your living room. Do you mind me asking where you got them?

    OK, I”m off to check out more of your blog : )
    I see you are on instagram. I’ll snap a pic of my china cabinet and put on my instagram if you want to see. My user name is Autum Hall

    1. Wow, that’s awesome! I love the idea of separating them – I’ll have to remember that! ๐Ÿ™‚

      The curtains are homemade, and the fabric is Tempo, Mambo from Tonic Living – hope that helps!

  2. Where did you find the blackboard paint? And was it easy to use… did you have to prime under it?

    1. I got the paint from Lowe’s! It was very easy to use – I typically always prime on these types of projects, but I’ve used chalkboard paint without priming in several other instances and it works just fine! I’ve had great luck with it and find it is generally pretty easy to work with! Hope that helps. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I love the blackboard paint inside. Definitely helps to let anyone who may be new to your house, exactly where everything goes.

  4. Great find! I love how the dark cabinet wall looks with the white exterior. Definitely going to remember this color combo ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. What a great use of the chalkboard paint! I didn’t think the blue and green was that bad, but the black and white definitely classed it up.

  6. So cute. I have a plan for chalkboard paint in my near future as well.

  7. Beautiful, and the chalkboard paint gives it that extra uniqueness…I love it! Great job ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Wow! What an amazing transformation. I love the chalkboard paint idea!!! You guys are awesome, great job!!!

  9. Wow, seriously gorgeous!! You guys are so inspirational!

  10. This is awesome. I need to paint a few items and this will be uber helpful!!!!!

  11. I think this is my favorite project you’ve ever done! It’s beautiful and I love the striped knobs.

  12. Huge improvement! I love white furniture-any kind! The chalkboard paint is so much fun, too! I really love the quirky knobs you added! That splash of red goes a long way! Love it!

  13. Wow, that looks so much better than the before! Very clean and chic. Great job you guys!

  14. It looks sooooooo much better! I love the black-and-white look, and the twine-wrapped hardware!

  15. OMG I am OBSESSED with the chalkboard labels for everything!! I LOVE how this came out!

  16. Beautiful– I just sold a huge hutch on craigslist last week. We just bought our first home and had a ton of storage in the kitchen and didn’t think we needed it. But looking at this, I want it back to paint!

  17. Awesome improvement! Love the touch of the chalkboard paint.

  18. I love that you used the chalkboard paint inside the cabinet!
