Hello my friends. You know me, I had to get in one more decorating post before heading to Spain.
I have had this honey of a Hoosier Cabinet for years. When we moved into our home in Alpine it really didn’t fit in with the décor.
It has remained at our previous home for the last 3 1/2 years. Our son bought the home so he had the honors of storing it for us.
Last weekend we brought her home. I swear I saw a smile on her face. Yes, I do think furniture have feelings. lol! I loved her as she was, but the oak just wasn’t going to cut it with our flooring.
After much consideration I decided to give her a coat of Antique white chalk paint. I have a hard time painting pieces that are nice wood.
Here she is with her new look. What do you think?
I quickly pulled out some of my old kitchen goodies and filled her up. I’m sure it will get a little tweaking now and then.
Most everything is yard, estate, or thrift sale finds. My sweet cherry cake holder was a give away win from Cindy at Old Time Farmhouse
I also bought the fan from Cindy.
I’m really loving her new look!
Even my Hoosier was found at a yard sale. I remember not too long after we had moved into our Highland home I was on my way to a boutique. Along the way I passed a yard sale that had antiques. I spied this beauty and wanted her so bad. She was $350. I remember being so worried about buying her. Hubby was gone hunting and I couldn’t talk to him to see if he thought it was o.k. Remember, this was before the days of cell phones. $350 was a good price, but that was a lot of money to a mother of 5 small children. I just had to go with my gut. I knew I would be so sad if I didn’t take her home. All was well, hubby returned home and was very understanding.
It’s a purchase I’ve never regretted. Even though I couldn’t use her for a few years. She looks right at home in our basement farmhouse kitchen, don’t you agree?
p.s. I want to thank Kerryanne for featuring my New Creative Space at Shabbilicious Friday and Jody and Stan for featuring the same post at Simple and Sweet Fridays. Also thanks to Laura from Sunday View for featuring my Lilacs & Silver post. It always makes my day!
