Cottage White Antique Cupboard


I found this piece on Craigslist, and instantly fell in love the minute I saw it, while trying to keep my cool so I could bargain.  I've never seen anything like it.  It was in great shape, aside from the scratched surface.  I really would have liked to have left something in the original wood, but it was just too rough.  I don't know allot about the era of pieces of furniture.  If I had to guess I would say around the 40's, but I really have no Idea.  It sat for a little while, waiting for inspiration, but in the end Cottage White won out, because of all the details it already had.  

I think it would make a great craft cupboard, or maybe in a baby's room.  It's at the Cottage for whatever purpose you need it for.  

Here it is before...

And after...



I decided to leave the handles in their original state, I like the contrast.

Ahhh all those details...


Thanks for stoppin'

What a great piece, Katie! I love all the details. It looks great in the cottage white, too. It would make a great little hutch/storage piece in a small dining area like mine!

You did a fantastic improvement on that piece. Some of the details looked so blah in the original wood. Now it really pops out in an eye catching way.
