Chalk Painting the China Cabinet

I've been think about painting this old china cabinet
ever since I brought it home, but I didn't want to sand it 
and use a primer. But now that I know about chalk paint,
I decided to see if it would work as well as it did on my coffee table.
No sanding and no priming,
and it turned out great.


I did it in turquoise and white. 

It is so much more bright and fresh looking,
I love it! And it was such fun seeing how all my 
collections look inside it. 

That's my mom's old cookie jar on top.
And her tea set inside.

I can't wait to paint something else with this chalk paint!
Today was my hubby's birthday,
so we will be going out to celebrate this weekend,
can't wait! 
Bye for now!
