A Shabby Chic Re-Purposed Sewing Machine Cabinet

My back finally healed and I was able to continue this project.  It started with an empty sewing machine cabinet with great cabriole legs.






I decided to paint it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Old White.
A little distressing with sandpaper.  BTW it was 108 degrees on the back porch.  

So, I sanded in the house.  Then Everything in the house was covered with white chalk dust including the dogs.  


I added this stenciled design to the front.

Then....after a sleepless night I decided that the top needed to be painted black.  

I waxed with Annie Sloan Clear and............ " TA DA"
