Our Shabby Vintage Cabinet

Happy Memorial Day weekend!! I want to remind you (while you BBQ and travel) what this holiday is really about... I m so grateful for the men and women who gave their lives so we can live freely. I am so proud to be an American! With that being said, in honor of Memorial Day, I wanted to show you a ridiculously, Studly-Mcstudlerton Vet, my grandpa. He was a B-24 Navigator in the South Pacific during WWII.  These shots were taken during his modeling days! Work it, Grandpa!
Sorry ladies, he's taken...

I wanted to share with you what I did to our DIY wine cabinet that is actually a vintage sheet music holder. While the rest of home is pretty subtle as far as colors go (besides our wildly bright, giant, vintage map, that is), I am having a blast playing with colors in our cozy little barn kitchen! In fact, I have made so many changes to our kitchen, I am going to have to post an updated kitchen reveal soon! 
This is what the wine cabinet looked like before... I love it in black, but thought the soft green suited the kitchen better. It sure brightened up our space!            
 Here it is in the soft green!

The paint color is Annie Sloan Versailles Green with a clear wax finish.

I am having so much fun mixing and matching funky fabrics and colors... our barn kitchen kinda has an anthropologie feel to it, which is just what I was going for. The green color is actually a little more subtle than it looks in these photos. Painting antiques in bright, fun colors and bringing in modern fabrics and patterns is a great way to make your antiques look updated while still keeping their vintage charm!
