Yep! That's what I've been removing from this old cupboard that we rescued from my MIL's former garage! It almost didn't make the cut when we were deciding what to keep and what to sell. Then I thought...Hmmmm... it would really hold a lot of wool in my studio/shop! So we hauled it home. After a couple of days scrubbing, sanding, removing a ton of cup hooks and that nasty contact paper.. I hate that stuff... it was ready to paint. The before photo was taken without the drawers which it does have. I think it turned out rather nicely!
I painted it an off grayish white and applied some antique toner.
The old glass knobs are original.
I love the old wavy glass in the doors!
I decided to remove the bottom doors so the wool is more easily viewed.
The cupboard has a little history as well. It was used on the farm in the pantry to store dry goods.
My MIL doesn't remember where it came from though.
All in all it is a very solid built piece and I am happy we decided to give it a new home!
I couldn't resist filling it with some orange, rust and red wools! And a little bittersweet ( last years) and some little twinkling lights! The smiling white JOL made his appearance and seems delighted with his new cupboard abode that matches his color!
A busy week is ending with having to take the dogs to the groomers tomorrow. They hate it so.. it stresses me out to have to take them!
Hope your week is ending well!
