Old cupboards like this one (found here) , sometimes called jelly cabinets, are easy to find in flea markets. They are inexpensive and provide great storage. Part of their charm is their wear and age, but many can be enhanced with a quick coat of paint. Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® is perfect for this task.
Mix Provence and Pure White into two shades, one slightly lighter (more white) than the other. For a layered look, paint the first coat solidly and for the second coat lighter coat leave areas where the under coat is exposed. Adding dabs of Louis Blue and highlights of Pure White, will add an authentic patina to this flea market find.
