We bought this brown glazed cabinet off the previous owner of the house because I knew I could do a furniture flip and transform it into the perfect display cabinet for glassware.
I mentioned in the post about upcycling my Lloyd Loom chairs that green will be the “red thread” for the interior decor here. This is the same Farrow and Ball paint that I used in that project. It’s Breakfast Room Green which I’d describe as just slightly bluer than sage. As with all Farrow and Ball paint, the room direction/lighting makes a big difference to the perceived colour.
With any painting project, preparation is key. I washed the cabinet with sugar soap, lightly sanded it and primed it. I gave it two coats of green paint. The paint finish is Dead Flat, a versatile finish that is wipeable. For that reason, I didn’t varnish or wax it. To give it a bit of detail, I used a fine paintbrush and gold paint to give the doors some accent.
The internal shelves are fixed which meant wallpapering the inside of the cabinet was more time-consuming than it would have been if I could have removed them and done the back in one fell swoop. The wallpapering itself wasn’t difficult, it was the pattern matching that took the time. However, it was worth it. From plain brown glazed cabinet to a beautiful display case; I’m delighted with this furniture flip.
