Driving home from a Mother's Day shopping trip, I spied this little lonely cabinet FREE on the side of the road. It may have been a hutch in a prior life. Regardless, it spoke to me in a way few pieces do. It had potential but it was hidden beneath an exterior that looked like it had spent a lot of time in a drafty garage. It was never a fine piece of furniture but it could be very functional, all it needed was a second chance at life.
To start with, I glued and clamped the top piece (behind the jars) back on.
Real Milk Paint - Oyster Grey and Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint (Farmhouse White).
Wire was strung through several eyes so a curtain could be hung. I used Ikea Riktig Stainless Steel Curtain Hook with Clip, to attach a couple flour sack dish towels as a curtain.
I picture this in a kitchen for dry food storage.
As much as I love this piece, it will be for sale at the Home and Patio Sale July 29 and 30 (yes I gave my sale a name!). Mark your calendar and simply drive to NE 15th and Fremont in Portland and follow the signs to the sale location!
