The Pantry Cupboard Make-over Complete
Well....here it is!!!
Hard to believe that this is the same old cupboard that was covered in thick gray porch paint!
If you need to refresh your memory...just scroll down a few posts to revisit the "before" pics of this piece.
After stripping and sanding we painted it in a lovely soft yellow.
Once dry we completed the make-over with our classic museum finish.
We think it turned out just great and hope it's new owner will be just as pleased.
At last weeks auction a reproduction dry sink was on the block...we looked it over...it was nicely done but somehow there was just something missing about it
We dithered over it and finally decided to pass on it. I'm sure someone took it home and that they were tickled pink with their purchase, but it just wasn't a "Red Door" find. It didn't have the warmth and charm of a truly old piece of furniture and that was the thing that was missing. It didn't have a history. It didn't have a story.
So this is the real deal folks...no repros here...just the warmth and feel of yesteryear.
