Welcome back my Beauties!
Its time for this months Fab Furniture Flippin Contest.

This month’s contest is sponsored by General Finishes and the theme is Fresh Start. General Finishes Chalk Style Paint is a casual chalky interior matte paint available in 20 contemporary colors.
This month’s challenge was to take an old piece of furniture and give it a “Fresh Start” by using General Finishes new line of chalk paint.

This is the cabinet I started with. It was on old MOD record cabinet.
The doors had fallen off and were thrown out.
I loved the design of the piece just not the color.

I decided to use General Finishes Chalky Paint in
Charleton Blue for the outside.
On the inside I coated the whole thing with General finishes Milk Paint in Seagul Gray.
Then I took a Geometric Floor stencil and used my Charleton Blue Chalky Paint to
stencil the geometric form on the back of the cabinet.
After it was all dry I coated the whole thing with General Finishes  high performance flat Finish
I still can't believe what a difference a nice coat of paint made on this piece.
Its the perfect cabinet for the side of the bed or the end of the couch.
