PAINTING & DISTRESSING TEAL & BLACK CABINET FOR NEW POWDER ROOM SINK

Isn't this the neatest little chest?
My client is building a new home.  She delivered this unfinished cabinet to my studio and told me she wanted me to paint a teal bottom with a black top.
She will be placing a stone sink on the top, so the browns and beige undertones will look really nice and tie in with the stone finish.


After I painted and distressed, I painted on and rubbed off a dark stain to match the black top.


I love to distress and age furniture.


This top is distressed a little heavily, but I wasn't sure about the size of the sink and how much surface it would cover.
When she came to pick it up, she was very happy with the new finish.
That's what I care about!
Making my client happy with my work.

    1. Thank you so much!! No, I didn't use her paint. Just my hard work. I mix a lot of my products. I hear Annie has very good paint, though.

    1. Thank you!! No, the teal is just regular paint. I think my flash and the outside light make it look like it could be metallic.

    1. Yes, I love the shape of the cabinet. I would love to see the sink, too, but probably will never get to see it. I'll share the picture if they send me one.

  13. Oh, what a great idea...I have a little cabinet similar and just have not been able to decide how to finish it. This is very pretty. Maybe I will leave mine brown on the top and a creamy off white on the bottom with very dark stain. Maybe two colors of of white dry brushed one...thanks for the inspiration!
