When I shared our latest kitchen updates, I mentioned that I had asked Ron to make a cover for the toaster oven. One of my decorating practices is to hide ugly stuff, and although my toaster oven is not particularly ugly, I think this new faux apothecary cabinet is much prettier!
The plan was to add a bit of color to the kitchen. Ron applied an undercoat of black paint with the idea that I would then paint it some colonial color (barn red or my favorite Quaker Green) and distress it. But when we put it on the counter, I really liked the black!
I did a small amount of distressing, applied a coat of Miss Mustard Seed's hemp oil, and left it at that.
Who knows? I may end up painting it another color some day. (Or maybe not.)
I am happy to have another house-y project checked off the list! ✔
