~craigslist cabinet~

I drove a total of 4 hours yesterday to pick this up!
But it was worth it, I love it!
It's a little hutch, looks like a child's play kitchen actually. It has a great patina.
Robins egg blue and white chippy paint.
Sorry, not the best photo, still learning how to use my new camera!

Right now it is in my kitchen, but it may move to a different room.

I picked these camellias from our yard and I
think the pink looks great with the blue paint!
I got these vintage glass bottles at a antique sale.

LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! I would have driven a lot longer for that! The flowers look amazing on it and the paint job is to die for! Lucky girl. Just wondering...what did you search under? We never have anything like that on our C.List.

Happy Easter!
Sarah :)

Very nice! What a sweet find. The flowers are gorgeous and I love the stack of platters in the bottom section of your new hutch.

Happy Easter!

Great little cupboard...I never find anything like that on Craigslist. Even when I list similar type things on Craigslist, I don't receive any responses. Oh well.....I'm jealous!

I also love your new coffee table...another great find.

Blessings and Happy Easter,
Susie

Melaine, I can think of a million little spots that cabinet would fit into in my house. Was there a twin? Guess it would be too much of a drive from California.

oh well, looks perfect in your house...sigh

It's perfect! But I think I would change the knobs to crystal ones. Camellias, peonies, roses...they all make a cottage so sweet.

Carol said...

Okay, I would have driven four hours for that sweet piece as well. It's soooo sweet.

Smiles,

Carol

I appreciate you taking the time and energy to put this content together.
I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
But so what, it was still worthwhile!
