Sewing Cabinet Gets Ready for School

We worked frantically this Saturday afternoon and into the evening Sunday to get the GarageMahal cleaned out and ready for a huge project that will be done before we leave for The Southern Belle’s Wedding June 1.
Tonight you get to see my awesome sewing cabinet. My friend Kandy gave me the cabinet and it is going to be going into my office soon.
When I got this sweet cabinet the top was split, there was a loose leg and one knob was broken. Hubby ripped off the top piece and used some glue and clamps to put the top back together.

I am going to use vintage school items to decorate my office and am using the color pallet from the 1950’s Dick and Jane book pages for my painted pieces. I am framing some Dick and Jane posters that will be art work on the walls.

I loved this color yellow it is called Jackfruit (Behr,of course). I only bought a sample sized container so it cost me less than $3.00 to paint the cabinet.
I found a new set of knobs that looked similar- only a little larger- at the Habitat for Humanity garage sale. Yay! I feel like I got them for free because I got several pieces of hardware for $2.00 that will be used for numerous projects. I moved the smaller functional knobs to the top drawer and gave the larger bottom drawer the bigger knobs.
I lightly distressed the finish then glazed it with my charcoal colored glaze.
Here is the beauty with a couple of coats of Rustoleum Urethane.
My office is going to be so much fun!
