Chalk Painting

 Hope you all had a great weekend !
I bought this cabinet last year at an estate sale for $25.00 .. It went into our living room, then at Christmas it went up to my bedroom where it sat until we painted it..
We left the top as is , its in good condition, and painted the bottom this pretty aqua blue..

 We used some darker paint in all the details so they would show.. I got new knobs for it at Hobby LObby .. they look like they were made for it.. The big problem is that we never opened the drawer.. and can't get it open to put the new knobs in ! I think I am just going to glue them on !!

 We used this chalk paint recipe. One coat of paint was all it took. I used a paint and primer from Menards.

 Have you ever made homemade ravioli ? It is so good.. I have an attatchment for my kitchenaid mixer that rolls the dough, so we don't have to use the crank roller anymore.. I made alot and froze them on cookie sheets and put them in zip loc bags, then back in the freezer.. I make a mixture of ground beef, Italian sausage and romano cheese.. They are amazing . My kids just slurp them up :)

Thank you as always for all your nice comments and for visiting my blog ! I appreciate each and every one of you ! Have a great day !

That shade of aqua makes my heart go pitter pat. What beautiful new life you gave to that piece. And what a bargain too. I can't wait to see what you and Chelsea do to the pieces you got for her new place!!!!
That ravioli looks so good. I have not made homemade before...but I must try it!

Cabinet looks great and love the knobs. Maybe you can use WD 40 to open the drawer? And the raviolis! Yum! I have a KitchenAid, need to get that attachment. xo

That is such a pretty blue!

Such a great makeover, Priscilla--and how lucky you are to have your daughter as a helper! Too funny that you can't get it open to put on the knobs!!

Wow--homemade ravioli! Have never had that, but it looks amazing :)
