The Curious Curio

By Courtney Cole, Owner at Twig & Thyme Design in Sterling, VA.

Passed down three generations, this classic Curio Cabinet sat in the corner curiously wondering if she’d ever get the modern update she so desparetly desired. Well, she did!

We showered her with attention, prepped and cleaned her up, and painted her in layers of silky-smooth General Finishes Black Poly. Her edges and details were lightly distressed for a bit of rustic charm and then sealed in General Finishes Pre-Cat Lacquer. Her shelves and interior were primed in General Finishes Stain Blocker and then given multiple flawless layers of General Finishes Poly tinted in creamy Antique White.  This gal’s now back in her corner standing proud showing off for all of her dinner guests.
