Farmhouse Style Cabinet Makeover

We have a running joke at our home that if I paint something any color besides white, it will eventually get repainted and will end up being white or some neutral color. Well, I thought I would surely never paint this cabinet any color but green. Well, I was wrong. 

It hasn't been that long ago that I painted the cabinet green. I loved the green but really felt like it was a bit of an outcast in the rest of our neutral colored home. So, I made a trip to Target and picked up one of the paint colors from the Joanna Gaines paint line. 

I chose the color called Gatherings from the Magnolia paint line. It is a lovely neutral that has golden gray with amber and tan undertones. I love that sometimes it looks more gray than white and sometimes it looks more greige depending on the amount of light that our home gets. I went with the eggshell finish and used a brush to paint around the glass and on the door panels, I used a roller for the bigger areas to get a really smooth finish. It took two coats of paint to color over the green but I used two thin coats. I found that the paint had great coverage. I then used the clear wax to seal the cabinet since it gets used on a daily basis. The clear wax that I used was also from the Magnolia line and really left a smooth finish that is easy to wipe clean. 

This cabinet now feels much more a part of our home. I simplified the items that I had on the inside of the cabinet and I love the neutral feel a lot more. What do you think? Were you a fan of the green or do you like this neutral color better?
