I am the Queen of picking things up with good intentions. Good intentions to paint it or clean it up or put it on ebay or whatever. Lots of times I look at it for so long I just get sick of it and end up re-donating it.
When I brought this little cupboard home this week, I swore that I would paint it and put it to good use. Not later, not someday...NOW! I hated the beige paint and the birdhouses and painted doors. I know some people might still like that look, but it's just not me. So, I sanded it and painted it white. I originally thought I would edge it in red like an old Hoosier, but in the end, I decided I liked it solid white.
To say that I love this little cabinet would be a severe understatement. Like, I want to marry it, you know?
And because I am in my *cough* 40's *cough, of course I have two sets of tiny dishes and a tea pot to fill it up. And, doily, of course. Green handled cookie cutter? No problem.
Wee cookie jar? Of course! Miniature salt and pepper shakers? Why, of course!
I spent part of the afternoon pillaging my house looking for all my little stuff. I think I found it.
I still need to put the tiny glass knobs on. I saved these from a long gone project. Happy that I rediscovered them earlier this week.
Here it is in the living room where I can see it. Right next to my beloved Shiny Brite filled lamp. Throw in a tiny celluloid baby doll and some metal toy scales and you have a table full of happy.
What made you happy today?
