Sexy black and white, the BBC

You get where I was going with that right?

Every woman is looking for her perfect Little Black Dress, the elusive one that goes with everything day or night.

Well I believe this is the Big Black Cabinet.

She goes with everything. Dressed up or down, the black and white combination makes her a versatile hutch. And yes, she is a she.

This lovely china cabinet was in need of a new home from people who were downsizing and I can't find the stinking before photo but imagine plain shiny brown and metal gates in the side doors and old brass not good old brass handles.

I refinished this cabinet with General Finishes lamp black milk paint (I now want to paint everything black) and poly. The inside of the cabinet is a whites mix of ASCP.

i used the opportunity to stage this cabinet as i was carrying items up the stairs to stage for the show. seeing it like this was not helping me with the considering this cabinet as a kid that i have to give up for adoption. (do not send me hate mail for that statement, i know this is not a child, figure of speech lol)

i left some of the wood showing through the paint and it is only noticeable in certain light which i love and gives it the sometimes i'm modern, sometimes i'm rustic look.


the hardware is original to the piece and is matched to the paint. very streamlined and sexy if i do say so myself.

Have a great day,
