Antique Cabinet Gets a Makeover with Green Fusion Mineral Paint

I recently picked up an antique cabinet from a local thrift store and gave it a makeover with Fusion Mineral paint.

I haven’t done a ton of painted furniture projects lately, instead, I have been looking for antique pieces in original wood.  With that said, I came across this piece at a thrift store recently and was lucky enough to see the lady unloading it when I arrived.  Since I wanted to purchase it, I asked her the history of it.  She said it was her grandmothers and thus over a hundred years old!

Originally, the thought I had was to strip it, but it had too much damage to salvage, so I decided to paint it instead.  I have never used Fusion Mineral paints but always heard good things so I decided to give it a try.  I picked out a pretty green color called Bayberry (LINK).  

I have to say, I think I’m hooked! It was super easy to use! It has a distinctive matte & smooth finish, similar to milk paint, with the added bonus of no mixing, no priming and, no top coat required. It had great coverage and with one coat and a few small touchups, the outside of the cabinet was painted.

For the interior, I chose a linen white paint by Rust-oleum (LINK). I’m really thrilled with how the white interior pops against the green exterior.

I originally planned on bringing this piece into my booth (LINK), but for now, I love it too much to sell!  Instead, I found a corner for it in our family room!  I styled it with books and knick knacks I had around the house and its the perfect piece!

This corner has always felt a little undone, so I’m happy to report that this new painted piece is exactly what this corner needed!
