Well hello!! Happy Australia Day!
I am still alive ;-) I've been away on holidays, relaxing and also...I have been doing some work!
I seem to have a few projects on the go at the moment with not much actually finished - except for this!!
This was an op shop find, that looked like this in the beginning -
Lovely warm orangey pine...don't we love it?! This stuff was everywhere in the 90's and if you still have it at your place...please...it's time for an update!! It's not hard, I promise you! :-)
This piece is going to be a phone cupboard/storage at my in-laws place - so it's going to a very good home!!
You may be wondering about my styling...and really, I don't have an explanation for it.
I tend to purposefully not think about it too much and grab things that are nearby that I think might photograph ok.
And I would not normally have Easter eggs at my house in January - that would be the girls Great-Nanna who always stops by with a treat for them and last week it was Easter eggs. :) I'm just thankful that it didn't start a discussion on how long until Easter bunny comes! Its definitely too early to start thinking about that!!
back to the cabinet and how I did it. (I may be getting a little predictable here)
My Fast Five Details:
1. I used DIY chalk paint - so no prep work :-)
2. I stripped and sanded the top, then stained it darker - a first for me!
3. I distressed then sealed the paint work with beeswax.
4. I sealed the top with satin polyurethane.
5. Changed out the knobs to these awesome ones!

FYI, Fast and Furious 6 is out in May!! Can't wait!! I'll have to change my 'fast five details' to 'fast six' :-)
Hope all is well with you,
