Terry picked up this wardrobe along the side of the road. Yup...that's right.....it was sitting at the end of a lane way with some other worthwhile finds. You know the old saying...one mans junk is another mans treasure!!.....we really take recycling to the next level.
When Terry brought it back to the barn it was a musty old thing with a bad paint job and wallpapered panels. She stripped it down and sanded the dickens out of it. Before long it was ready for a coat of Yorktown Green and then the big question....what to do with the front panels once the wallpaper was removed??? Paint "Old Town Kemptville" of course!!! Using a copy of the towns centennial book for reference, Terry painted the town in a naive folk art style. The Presbyterian church and the Bank of Ottawa building are featured on the lower half of the doors while a pastoral farm scene complete with sheep and herding dog grace the top. This is truly a one-of-a-kind cupboard...stay tuned for more trash to treasure items coming soon.
