I love, love, love, vintage radio cabinets.
I’ve found several in my junkin’ travels and painted all of them.
This one is a redo.
I decided to paint the cabinet an off-white, antique with toner, and distress heavily.
This is the original makeover…
..metallic silver with a white wash finish.
The cabinet has been at the shop forever so a redo was in order.
I had so many people tell me how much they liked the finish ….and yet….it didn’t sell.
I was getting ready to repaint it and someone walked in the shop and asked me how to get that metallic look.
I think distressed white paint is one of my favorite furniture looks.
After painting and distressing the cabinet I applied Caromal Colours Toner to achieve an antique finish.
You can find a complete tutorial on the antiquing process at….Tutorial-How To Antique Painted Furniture.
I love the details on the bottom leg support.
Or whatever that thing is called….anyway I like those little round detailed wood circles.
I had a helper while taking photos of the cabinet at the shop.
My granddaughter Sofi.
She has such a beautiful smile.
Do you guys like the cabinet now?
