I'm still trying to get a grip on this cell phone technology at my finger tips.
Trying to figure out how to post and comment on pics.
This may take a while.
|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 decided the only way I could get that new one was to start by selling this one first!|
So the day came when I had to clean it out
I had a tear in my eye
and a knot in my stomach
I didn't realize it would be so hard
I guess because we built it together
It meant more than I realized
I DID cry as it drove away to it's new home.
|Almost a week went by before I could go get this cupboard|
I needed to raise more money!
I sold things from my home
that I had time to love for a while but could let them go.
I also sewed up some of these GREAT grain sack pillows.
One set I sold and the other went towards the cupboard, the woman who I was getting it from
wanted them for her booth.
|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??
|I was so happy to find these lavender topiaries at WALMART today!!|
Even more excited to see they were only 7.88 each! plus 13% tax of course!
Well that's the price at the Walmart here in Canada anyways.
|I missed getting any last year because they sold so FAST!|
And I could see how fast they were flying off the skids today too!
