Updating a Curio

I picked up this curio cabinet last Saturday at an estate sale on Cape Cod. 

10 Curio BEFIt was in excellent condition but the golden oak had to go! 

Nothing a little white paint (Chantilly Lace) and toile can’t cure.

The original applique was kind of blah… I changed that too.  Something more in keeping with the with toile.

10 Curio CLOSE

Already installed in the shop.

10 Curio 2

   Gotta love a quick flip!

Hi! I wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog and for leaving a comment on my dreamy, vintage vanity:) It is so funny, because the paper you have used in this glass hutch is the EXACT same as in my vintage vanity, just in other tones. I know because I have it in this color scheme allso:) I have actaully used it in several furnitures before. I love this hutch! Gorgeous! It is very similar to one I painted about a year ago. :)
Have a great day!
