I Tweak, Therefore I Am

With apologies to Descartes, I would like to share an addition to my latest project, the buffet deux corps...

The piece needed something to "marry" the top to the bottom.  A kind blogger suggested I paint the bonnet, between the dentil and rope molding, the same Annie Sloan French Linen as the body.
I did not do this for two reasons.
1).  I was afraid of it looking too stripey and...
         2).  I used up all  of my Annie Sloan French Linen! 

I looked through my collection of antique ormolu and newer wood appliques.  Nothing seemed to work. I came upon a cherub door knocker that I had intended to use as a towel holder but it was too small.  I aslo had a crown that was formerly a coat hook from Hobby Lobby.
I painted each with Annie Sloan Old White, Clear and then Dark Wax.

The Dining Room is semi-formal so I think this works a bit more than just the plain cabinet.

What do you think?


  1. I think it is a beautiful piece! I love the color and the cherub.

  2. Andie it's a perfect match! Your cherub and crown look great on your newly remodeled cabinet. I would buy the piece for sure it really is beautiful!

  3. Andie you do beautiful work! The cherub and her crown is just what that cabinet needed!
    Its gonna be awhile till I get to your kitty ornament, I have quite a few ornaments to finish up, hope your not in a hurry,

  4. Knocked out by the knocker :-).

  5. Your cabinet finish is gorgeous! The cherub with crown is the perfect finishing touch! You did a fabulous job!



I love hearing what you have to say!
