White Paint And A Vintage Radio Cabinet Makeover
I love, love, love, vintage radio cabinets......and white paint. I’ve found several of the radio cabinets 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. Go figure.
The cabinet came from the Nashville Flea Market.
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?
I have another radio cabinet that is everyone's favorite. It's my signature piece. See it here...Wowed By Tricycle Red.
