This stunning, solid mahogany china/display cabinet has been given a whole new lease on life! Formerly stained in a dark red tone, this Federal style cabinet has incredible carved details, including a carved arch, urn finial, shelves with plate grooves, and reeded legs. The entire piece has been sanded down to raw wood and given a paint wash in Country Chic Paint's Driftwood, a muted brown that is a Pumpkin Seed Designs favorite for natural-looking wood. The inside of the cabinet and shelves have been painted in Wise Owl Paint's Black, a beautiful true black that fades nicely into the cabinet but provides the perfect backdrop for bright pottery such as ironstone. The shelves inside are removable if you desire to use only one or none! This piece was photographed without the glass in the door for most of the photos. The last photo shows it reinstalled without anything inside (in my dining room, so not ideal lighting conditions).
Aside from the cabinet and shelves, this piece boasts a large dovetailed drawer for all kinds of storage. The wood inside the drawer has been reconditioned with an unscented furniture salve. It opens and closes smoothly. The original hepplewhite pulls on the drawer have been cleaned and sprayed in an oil-rubbed bronze to match the teardrop pull on the door. The door has an original ball and catch strike plate, which still works very well. The fretwork in the door has been removed due to damage - this also helped to modernize the overall look of the cabinet. The entire piece has been sealed in a water-based satin polyurethane for durability that won't cause yellowing over time.
This gorgeous cabinet would be a great addition to any home due to its neutral color scheme. Check out the measurements below. Don't miss out on this lovely storage piece. Available for pickup in Windham, Maine.
