The trash that I want to talk about is in my kitchen and it’s the trash can cabinet pictured below.
I love this cabinet. It’s probably the most functional and used piece of furniture we have in the whole house.
Several years ago, (probably more like eight years ago) Charlie and I purchased the trash can cabinet at a craft show. When we purchased the cabinet it had an oak stain on it. Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of it. It was before my blogging days. Not caring for the oak stain, I painted it black and really liked it BUT…
because I have a lot of black furniture in my kitchen, I’ve been wanting to lighten some of it up and the trash can cabinet was my first lighten up project.
I painted it Annie Sloan Off White, distressed it and added a little dark wax. I added bun feet to the bottom to give it a little more height.
Instead of painting the top, I stained it a dark walnut.
So what do you think, should I have left it black or do you like the off white? For me right now, it’s taking some getting use to. Maybe once I lighten up a few more pieces in the kitchen, I’ll feel different.
As always, thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
