Refresh Paint Color Using Hemp Oil
Green Folk Art Cabinet
I introduced you guys to this cabinet yesterday.
I promised to have her cleaned up and ready for show by the end of the week and I beat my estimation.
Rarely am I ahead of schedule!
This is how she looked when I found her at the Nashville Flea Market.
A closer look….she was really dirty and the paint was chipped and faded.
I liked the chippyness, the color of the paint, and the painted details.
I got out my shop vac and the Simple Green and went to town.
It took me a couple of hours to get the cabinet clean inside and out.
After she was cleaned up I used Miss Mustard Seed’s Hemp Oil to bring the paint color and the exposed wood back to life.
This photo shows the drawer front where I started rubbing the hemp oil into the paint. You can see an obvious difference between the area with hemp oil and the one without.
What a difference
I went through my hardware stash and selected larger knobs for the doors and found a replacement knob for the right side drawer.
I used Rust-Oleum Satin Expresso and Rust-Oleum Metallic Antique Bronze spray paints.
It works best to spray paint the knobs on the backside first.
I wish I knew the history of the cabinet and who the person was that lovingly painted the floral designs.
So I didn’t repaint this piece.
I love her just like she is.
I’ll put her in the shop and if she doesn’t sell….. then I might re-paint her.
What do you think of her now?
