Mini Paint Project

I have finally completed a tiny project that has bugging me on my to-do list forever now!

Remember the little downstairs bathroom with the cute antique cupboard… (tiny room = bad photos, sorry!)

Well, here is the very sad, and a little scary inside of this cupboard…

So, a little paint and some pretty things to make the cupboard useful, and… viola!

The cupboard is antique, and therefore has many bumps and cracks, so it will never be “perfect,” but now its not such an eyesore. When company is over I will not be so embarrassed to let them reach in for another roll of toilet paper or necessity!

I even did a bit of decorating to the necessities in the cupboard. These antique jars got new fun lids. And a small box got a bright cover to hold small things.

Aah, much better! What do you think? More projects on the way too! 🙂

Downsizing the Antiques

My obsession with vintage furniture grows and my house feels like it is shrinking.  So… some items must find a new home!  I thought I would list a few things here and there on here for you to all check out.  Feel free to contact me with any questions!

1. Two vintage metal lawn chairs and matching table.  So adorable!  SOLD!

2. Vintage tin top cabinet.  We used this as our kitchen island.  This isn’t the best photo, but it also has lots of charm!  SOLD!

3. Vintage Danish modern chair.

One Little Project At A Time

blog-pics-1-002When I get excited about something I lose all patience.  Tony tells me constantly, “Calm down Jess, one thing at a time.”  I’m trying, but just can’t control myself.  Here is one small project we have completed.  Just before we moved in here we went to an auction.  We found this old little kitchen cupboard and scored in for $10.  It’s back was burned and the sides were wrinkled, and paint was falling off.  People probably thought we were crazy for even taking it home.  But, a new back, a few dollars, and a lot of work later, we have a cute vintage kitchen island.  The kitchen was too big not to have a table for more counter space, and this little guy solved our problem.  Take a look!  (I need to get better at remembering to take before photos of our projects! oops!)

I love those old tin tops! It does have one chip we would like to fix, but overall... Cute! What do you think?
