Old cupboards are perfect for displaying books, treasures or photos.
I have a vintage china cabinet that was my grandmothers and she gave it to me about 15 years ago
I was inspired by so many painted cupboards I have seen out there in design books or blogs
and I was especially inspired by the beautiful cupboard that Brooke Giannetti- Velvet and Linen –
has in her office.
Ohhh… I LOVE it!
or even fabrics and bits in the office.
So I grabbed a couple cans of chalk paint, put Pandora on my Ipod and painted away.
I wasn’t 100% loving how dark it was coming out with the first coat of paint
so I then layered another coat of paint on it again with Coco mixed with right off
the hardware store shelf White.
It created a very pale shabby grey… which I am loving!
and for the most part it doesn’t bother me.
I love that the doors open all the way ~ so many possibilities for displays.
the display inside and an antique baby basket filled with hydrangeas fit perfectly on the top.
I love the old curled darkened ruffled edges, worn corners and gilded pages showing.
I’m kind of loving where the cupboard where it is right now
but not sure it is staying there yet ~ I have another spot in mind too.
Things are always moving from room to room over here.
Hope you are having a fantastic long weekend!!
