The original cabinet had about four different veneer treatments (sorry you can't see it better, but this is the only before photo I have). Which, while I didn't particularly like them, did add some interest.
Once the first coat was on, I could see it was going to look kind of plain. So I picked up some wood embellishments at Michaels and played with a couple of combos.
I decided to keep it fairly simple and went with the fleur de lis.
I used three smaller ones on the top.
And one large one on the drawer.
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint because I was in a hurry and didn't want to have to prime the cabinet. I didn't even take the dishes out -- I just pulled it out from the wall a bit and painted it in place! Eventually I'll paint the inside shelves.
I did a light distressing to bring out some of the detail.
And added some old glass knobs that I had from another project.
I like it, and think once everything is in I'm going to get the look I was going for. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the table is going to work out this time, and I'll be ready for the big dining room reveal by next week!
