After I go out of my cutesy country stage and decided I liked primitive I wanted to go to the antique shops. So, my hubby obliged and took me to a huge one just outside Medina. There in the back room I saw the cabinet I had to have. No it was not in the original condition it was made in repairs had been made, but it was still quite expensive for my small budget. I had no idea where I was going to put it in my small ranch home at the time. All I knew was I had to have it. I remember paying for it and then feeling guilty because I spent the money. We loaded it in the bed of the pick up truck and brought it home. Now I can't part with it because of all its quirks I have found over the years.
I can't get a complete picture of it because my dining room table is in the way. I love you all, but I have a hard time moving the table without getting a hernia. LOL.
I don't love the design on the bottom doors, but I deal with it.
LOVE LOVE LOVE oh did I say LOVE tin punched anything, but loved the sides on this. There is a total of 6 panels on the upper part.
Close up of the panel. Look no hearts. If you are new to my blog I don't like decorating with hearts, but I love stars.
If you don't like the look of a hole put a tin can lid over it to hide. That way no one will see it. I love this part to. I am assuming someone tried to add a light at one point, but who knows. I can't tell because the back of the cabinet has a newer thin sheet of plywood on it. By newer I think 20 years or so.
The middle shelf is one piece of wood that is so warped that everything rolls off. I have to brace everything that might have that tendency. Right now I have my masher on there and it rolls right off. Sorry not a very good picture.
Last but not least I love this part. If your shelf isn't long enough... pound nails through bottle caps so it has something to rest on to hold it up.
I put the third coat of stain on my door and it is now the color I love. Hubby even says he likes and I did a good job. I almost fainted. We have decided to put a coat of polyurethane on too so that I can wipe it down if needed. AND I also made two pillow shams yesterday too. So it turned into WHAT I DID Work on Wednesday. LOL.
