I immediately fell in love with this Ball and Claw foot cabinet. I was really unsure what I was going to do with it at first. It previously was a small TV cabinet but I knew that It needed to be repurposed into something more fun and useful. It was the perfect size for a small child's armoire. A perfect place to hang baby clothes or fun costumes. I needed to add a back to the cabinet as well, and I painted strips in General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint and Persian Blue Milk Paint. I gave the piece a good cleaning and a light sand before I started to paint the rest with General Finishes Coral Crush Milk Paint. I used an antiquing gel to tone down the color a bit and give it a worn look. I lightly distressed with a sanding sponge and finished the piece off with three coats of General Finishes High Performance Top Coat in Flat.
