|Well, this here is my new (old) cupboard!!|
Isn't it perty!?
I found it at the Christie Antique Show.
It was love at first sight.
I have been feeling the NEED to make changes within our home
find ways to infuse a little more color
|Now, this here is the cupboard that my husband and I built TOGETHER|
I know it's story.
It holds special meaning.
I really needed a LARGE kitchen cupboard for our family
We couldn't afford much at the time
|We already had these pine doors purchased from a yard sale for $3.00|
that were taken off someones old cupboards.
So we went out and bought more pine (which cost more than planned!)
but we built this wonderful cupboard for our kitchen.
|I first stained it|
then painted it with just regular latex paint
I actually mixed a few colors together that I had left over from other projects
|It was GREAT for all my spices & pantry items.|
|I just loved (still love) it!|
I e-mailed the owner of the cupboard and asked if she still had it
Or had it been sold at the antique show??
.........She still had it...........
|I had pictured right away that I would fill it with Ironstone and Linens|
(which now I want more of because I had to take most of this from everywhere else)
|This exposed side has no green paint left on it|
I think years ago someone scraped it off.
|But THIS side is loaded with wonderful chippy green paint!|
Unfortunately I don't know the story of THIS cupboard.
I wish I did!
How old is it exactly?
Who owned it?
Where is it from?
What stories could it tell?
Ahh The BEAUTY of old!
| So here it is~starting another chapter in it's life.|
In it's new home.
A wonderful girl gave it a lovely home.
|I think it looks wonderful and I hope she loves it.|
I miss it.
I am really warming up to the change of having this new (old ) cupboard
Do you love the change??
