I'm head over heels in love with this little wall cabinet I just finished yesterday. Please overlook my chipped toenail polish and paint speckled work flops...who has time to keep up with things like that? The star of the show is actually an old screen door that I salvaged out of my friend's barn. I love the little curly swirls at the top!!! It's rusty, crusty and utterly fabulous! The moment I pulled it out from under a pile of "icky stuff", I knew I would use it to create a little cabinet I can decorate seasonally. I adore decorating for the seasons, especially fall!!
Here she is all decked out for the beginning of fall. I will change this up again for October and yet again in November, and that is just one season! One of my favorite things is creating little vignettes around the house. It gives me something different to look at since I love change!
Here you can see the delicious color on the planks I used to make the back of the cabinet. Its a gorgeous soft aqua/white which goes with everything. It's the original paint that was on old pine tongue and groove flooring I found piled in a stall in one of my barns. It likely came out of my 1929 farmhouse during some past renovation and they just tossed it in the barn for me to find years later.....Hurray!!!
The wood that makes up the cabinet box is also salvage from my house and the door frame is made out of the rails of our old horse corral we tore down last year.
I used some of my bottle collection, candles (LED tealights...we don't want to start a fire!) and silk florals I've picked up at local thrift stores. The recycled glass cross is a recent treasure I picked up on a trip to Savannah.
The hinges and the label holder are from D Lawless Hardware that I ordered online. You can find it here...http://www.dlawlesshardware.com/. The hinges wrap around the side and mount flat to the cabinet door and are, by far, the easiest hinges I've ever installed! I love the antique copper finish. The label holder is so cute and I must admit I'm addicted to them. I'll be putting those on all the drawers in a custom build I'm designing in my head. It will be a floor to ceiling china cabinet for my dining room. The knob on the cabinet was a $1 thrift store find...gotta love that!!! This was a really fun and simple build and will certainly not be the last of its kind. I love resurrecting old salvaged items into unique pieces that will live on for another generation. What brings you joy?
I love levi's and flannel shirts with the sleeves rolled up. I love every opportunity to create unique furniture whether it's simply a repaint or a custom build project.
