This cupboard was hand made specifically for this space probably by one of the farmers who lived here and I love everything about it. I painted it and the new beaded board we just put up Martha Stewarts "Bone Folder", you are shocked I know:) The beaded board on the walls outside of the cupboard is Gliddens "Swan White".
This is the cupboard before we gutted the room...
I only wanted to use antique hardware on this piece and had picked up a handle and a drawer pull at the flea market over the summer that were exactly what I had in mind. I thought it might be a challenge to find more of the exact same hardware in the quantity I needed but Etsy made it a snap! What did we ever do before Etsy?:) I found four bin/drawer pulls that matched exactly to the one I had already! And then I found three handles that also matched exactly to the one I had! I love when stuff works out like that. The one door on the bottom has a bin pull because it is an old potato bin, another wonderful thing about this cupboard!
I made short work of filling the shelves with all of my favorite things like ironstone, wire baskets, crocks and old jars and tins. When Neal came home from work he said "Wow you sure filled that up in no time":) Well yeah! This is what I live for!
Sadly I am probably going to have put more practical things like canned goods in here because we need the storage, but for now I just had to make it pretty.
And I know you are wondering about this amazing sign...it is from Knick Of Time on Etsy. I am very particular about reproduction signs but Angie does such an amazing job on these that you would never know they weren't the real thing. I am constantly on the search for late 1800's early 1900's well done reproduction signs but they are hard to find so when she listed this one I snatched it up!
I am so happy with the way this room is coming together, it is just how I always pictured it. We are still finishing up LOTS of things in here so no pictures of the whole room yet but hopefully soon!
