Elephant Cabinet

In love with how this cabinet turned out! My clients son built this cabinet when he was in High School many years ago. His mother enjoyed it and during a down size had the wonderful thought of getting this fellow refinished for her beloved daughter in law. Her son’s wife has a love for elephants so Maureen Flanigan handpainted both a mom and baby elephant on the face of the doors in acrylic paint.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Greek Villa and glazed in brown. Hardware left in original state but cleaned up.

1914 White Beauty Hoosier Cabinet

This 1914 White Beauty Hoosier Cabinet has been in my clients family for over 100 years and has seen better days. They wanted this antique beauty to have some parts restored, like the flour sifter, hardware, metal spice holder, and side metal mounts. The original wood body to be refinished in white.

Before Pictures:

As I started to strip this gal I found 4 separate paint colors from throughout her life time. Not only was this paint extremely hard to remove but each layer was lead paint. Proper removal required the utmost safety precautions one must do. This gal took me a long time to complete.

Once the paint was removed she was looking rather good in her natural state! I replaced the backing on the top section as the original one had a few cracks and started to fall apart making her less sturdy.

The hardware was black and grimy, but once stripped, soaked and clean I found engraving marker’s and the original color to be nickel! The hinges and knobs were stained from time so I revamped them in nickel to give it a new fresh look.

Priming was the next step!

Once primed, I painted everything in Sherwin-Williams Greek Villa and did a light glaze using Sherwin-Williams Cadet, a soft blue grey to help tie in the porcelain enamel top. Finishing her off with adding nickel casters, like how she had before- once upon a time ago.

This project took time, patience and lots of stripper, sand paper and elbow grease. There was blood, sweat and tears, but we don’t need to go there. I am so happy with how she turned out and even more grateful to add her to my portfolio!
