Louis Blue

We recently picked up this old radio cabinet.  After taking the old radio parts out, putting some Annie Sloan Chalk paint to it, and adding a cute basket, we ended up with a sweet little cabinet.  Meet Louis. We chose to paint him in Louis Blue, and add dark wax to the finish.  He turned out so cute!  Take a look.

Wouldn't this look great in a bath room, or as a tv cabinet?  How about a nice cheerful kitchen island?

We gave him a light tatter, and just a tad of dark wax.

 I was a little hesitant in using the light blue color on a piece of furniture such as this, but I just love the results!  I never tire of recycleing old, uninteresting, abandoned furniture into newly loved ones. 

Have a great weekend everyone!  I hope you can make it out this weekend or next.  The shop is bursting with treasures!
