Before I get to the part where I show you what was behind the big cupboard I moved into a closet in my last post, I'd like to share my newest rug design.
I released it last evening on Primitive Handmades Mercantile. Click Here to go get all the details!
I released a paper pattern for my fellow rug hookers too!
I love how the rug turned out and it was super fun to hook! You will love the colors in this one and I love how it looks on this old cupboard in our living room.
Speaking of cupboards.... I have collected cupboards of all sizes and kinds over the years. It's amazing how many I've been able to cram into our average sized ranch style home. Built in the 1950's our house is short on closet space so it was a particularly daring move to give one up to house a cupboard. Maybe it speaks volumes on how much I love cupboards.
So... take a look at what was behind cupboard # 1 in the dining room.....
That's right! A DOOR!! That's another thing about this house.... while it's short on closets it's long on doors! I have never seen another house that has as many doors as this one! Whenever I get the chance to remove a door around here it gives me more satisfaction than you can know! LOL!
That door in the above photo is actually one of two that leads into our master bedroom. There's another DOOR at the end of the long lonesome hallway that enters the bedroom as well.
This door has the added bonus of being a dutch door. It really doesn't matter because we never use this door. Mainly because there is another cupboard behind that door in the bedroom!
I'm not kidding when I said I love cupboards!
So there you have it! Just one of the many issues I confront when doing any type of decorating or rearranging of furniture. It is always a challenge to say the least.
I moved the pie safe with punched tin panels from the living room ( where it housed our TV ) to the dining room where it now holds a small TV and other items like cookbooks. How do you like my outdated wall paper border?
There's so many things around here that I'd like to change but time and money are always a problem.
So I keep rearranging and moving my cupboards around.
It keeps me happy and content for the time being.
That little table in front of the DOOR may or may not be there next time you look. I am in a rearranging frame of mind!
Anybody want to come and help?
