~my new chippy cabinet





I found this gem of a cabinet at a sale I went to this past weekend. I was thrilled to see a friend who had it in her booth! While I know it isn't exactly my husband's "style", he is a wonderful man who is so supportive of things he finds, well, junky. Funny but that is exactly what I loved about it!

I plan to store all of my favorite serving platters and ironstone in it. It sits adjacent to our dining area, and it also near the kitchen, thus making it ideal for storing those sorts of things.

It currently is a few different pale blues, with chippy white paint underneath. I think I will live with it for a bit before I decide what I want to do with it. I just may leave it as it is~



Have a lovely Tuesday~

I'm for leaving it as it is. I am IN LOVE with your cabinet too. Great inspiration for 'Avec peu on peut vivre le présent à l'infini!'. You too inspire me!!!

Oh my gosh, I love it! It's perfect just the way it is.

It's funny - my dad inherited an old cabinet from his parents and it is painted the most perfect shade of aged blue-grey. I almost lost it when he said he wanted to have it refinished. I'm not sure he'd seen that side of me before :).

It is so appealing and looks great as it is and where you placed it in your kitchen area. I like the contrast. I bet hubby will come around to love it as much as you do!

Oh, it is a beauty. Reminds me of something you would see in Country Living magazine. Maybe you could just put a litttle poly on it. That way in you need to wipe it down, you can.
p.s. It's extra nice looking because of your beautiful photography!

Hello, this is Yoli. I want to sincerely thank you for recently posting comment on my old blog, Apron of the Month Club. Your words of faith and encouragement are very special to me especially with our sudden relocation news and increased stress.

The company I work for is relocating my job to a new city by January 1st. I also co-own an online boutique with my sister Jessica, and we have decided to professionally seek solo creative directions. So, I am opening up a new online boutique and new blog. I look forward to God opening new doors. My kids and are excited about new adventures.

Please know that I read each and every comment you post. They are my inspiration and confirmation of God’s love. Please add me to your list of blogs that you follow.

God Bless You!
Yoli
