Hi everyone!...Here is another primitive piece in my home that has been asked about alot...I got this cabinet at Michael's in the unfinished wood section about maybe 10 years ago...They don't carry them now and haven't since...I got this one on clearance for $20....I painted it blue and sanded it really good~~added some stain~~and there you go!...I DON'T spend any more time on my wood pieces than I have to...I DON'T have patience to add several layers of colors...Just one coat, sand, and stain...Simple! And it has become one of my favorite pieces in the house...

On another note: I'm going to be away from the computer for the next 4-5 days doing some designing...I've been wanting to do this...I've got my graph paper, my chosen threads, and scraps of paper with notes and ideas on them ready....So any orders I've received in the last few days will be on hold til next week.....

Until next time!!~~hugs, Jen

That is a cool cabinet! It looks like you might be able to use it upside down too with the rack at the bottom. Too bad they didn't sell them still...great piece!

Hi Jen...your collections are gorgeous. You know I'm a softie for Saltglaze of any kind...yours is beautiful and I love how it's all displayed.
NOW YOU GO AND ENJOY YOUR DESIGNING.
I think that's what I'm going to have to do one day is STAY AWAY FROM THE COMPUTER and maybe I can accomplish some much needed designing.
But don't stay away too long...I love reading your wonderful posts.

Beautiful piece. Thanks for sharing your secret. I would have thought that it came from one of those expensive prim home catalogs.
I'm going to have to get more creative with paint.

I love that piece! And I'm like you about the one color paint job. Once I sand & stain I'm almost always satisifued with it. As with everything you did a great job.
I hope the designing goes well. Have fun!
