Our First Winner of the Monthly Makeover Contest!

We are so pleased that Andrea was the first winner of monthly #TPHMakeover contest, and even more thrilled with how her grandmother's stereo cabinet turned out!

 The cabinet needed some love to bring it into today's decor and we decided to use Old White and Paris Grey Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan.

We painted the entire piece with Old White and used a wash of Paris Grey overtop and slightly distressed it. We like to use a very little amount of water preferring to use a wet rag to do the wiping.

We removed the old fabric from around the speakers to reveal the wood that we painted with Graphite paint quite thick, creating lots of texture.

For the finishing touch, we used white wax to enhances and highlights the texture. 

We love how it turned out and we're super excited to have Andrea see it.
