Every year for 4 years I've been buying myself a birthday present.
(That was a couple of months ago, I'm just finally getting it on here)
I decided each year I'll find some chippy white painted piece, wood, metal anything white and chippy, big or small.
This year I found this awesome old chippy white cabinet in an antique store in Wyoming called The Hen House.
I almost fainted when I walked in and saw this. The man had just brought it in the evening before and I happened to stop in the following morning right after he opened the doors.
I could NOT resist it!
I think I was the first person to see it, it was meant to be and it would not have lasted the day.
The price was really fair, around here it would have been almost double.
It needs a little push on the lower left side and a bit of glue and then the doors will hang straight.
Look at the cutouts in those cupboard doors!!!
That's what really got me and each one is positioned differently.
The drawer pulls are original and cute.
The little twisty thing at the top to hold the cupboard doors shut. The glass is missing but that's okay because I would just as soon not have it there.
It needs some cleaning inside because it was BARN FRESH!
I plan to store my hand dyed wool in the upper cupboard.
It will be so pretty against that old chippy white wood.
I can keep my dyes and dye pots in the bottom cupboards.
Once the 'bunkhouse' is finished I have a perfect spot for this.
A side shot. It appears to have a pale blue/green paint under the white so where the white has crackled the green shows through.
You can't do a faux finish like this one!
It's pretty primitive, I wouldn't want my entire house like this but a few pieces here and there is fun.
I love this chippy treasure and I can't wait to get it set up in the bunkhouse.
Thanks for stopping!
