Ugly Cupboard


We were out looking for things for the shop and Herb told me to come look at this cupboard, he could see it had good bones. Someone had worked hard painting all those flowers on there and painting it all those colors, and adding all that trim. Its an old piece, a BIG old piece. We knew we could bring it back to its former simplicity, so that is what Herb has been working on this week, I have been working on some chairs, a small cupboard, a shelf, and redoing some little boxes that were kinda blah....anyway, this is the "before", will be posting the "after" in a few days. Sometimes you need to rescue these pieces, kinda like a sad stray little puppy.

Funny that you posted about a cupboard...today I had coffee with a dear friend of mine who is moving and she was downsizing on some furniture and she asked me to take a look at an old cupboard that she was going to sell...OMG I love it and brought it home with me today...I am going to post some pictures of it soon...I too may repaint it but it is going into my craft room and the potential is so there for lots of reasons!
have fun!
Blessings~

I am sure the cupboard is doing a happy dance that Herb is taking the ugly off of it. Can't wait to see it finished. :)
