Cupboard And Shelf Plus GW Finds

Hello All!!

Well, I just got in from work, ate, and of course watched today's GH.

I decided to log on and check in with everyone and show off a couple of make over’s.

This week I repainted my cupboard I have in my Dining Room.

The large one that I display my red ware and yellow ware on.

I haven't been happy with the paint on this piece since I first did it years ago.

So finally I got around to repainting it.

Here are some Before and After photos.

I could only find these older photos of the before.  So you will notice that it is decorated differently in each picture.

But I guess that really doesn't matter, since I only want to show off the previous yellow paint compared to the new black.

I did sand and age this piece.  Leaving some of the yellow showing through slightly in spots.  Making it appear worn away.  I'm really happy with the way it turned out.



Here is another make over I did awhile back.

This is one of the first things my husband ever bought me.  He bought it in 1990 and I've had it just sitting on a shelf in my sewing room for years.  I knew I could never get rid of it, but it wasn't my style any more either. 

(Please ignore the dust!! LOL!!)



So when I redid my 1/2 bath I needed something for one of the walls in there.  I decided to prim this piece up some.

I removed the heart shaped doors and painted it an aged mustard yellow.

This is what it looks like now.


Not too bad, if I do say so myself! 




Here are some Goodwill finds I got the other day.

I paid less than $4 for the whole lot.

I bought the pan for making some panty cakes.  Just need to find some time to actually do that!!

Hopefully this weekend.

The basket I'm planning on trying to age it.

I was going to paint it but that may be too difficult. 

So I'm going to try dipping it into some aging solution and see if that works.

I also have a plan for the chair.  Starting with a new coat of paint!! But then I am going to try something else with it.

I will be sure to show off the basket and the  chair as soon as I get them finished up.

So that leaves the candle holder and candle.

I really like the candle holder but not the candle.

So I painted the candle back and rolled it in a grubby mixture.

I think it turned out really neat.

I now have it sitting in my Dining Room on my newly paint cupboard.


What’cha think!!?

Pretty neat looking, huh?

Of course I know I can never burn it, but it does look really prim as is.



Well, that is about it for me.

I am going to try to find some time tonight or tomorrow to finish up my chair.

I'm really excited to see if my idea works.

I’ll be sure to show it off as soon as I get it done.

I now need to go spend some time with Hubby.

Until next time…

Take Care and Prim Filled Blessings to you ALL!!

Tammy, I liked the cupboard in the mustard color, but WOW does your collection of red/yellow ware really pop against the black. Terrific makeover. I always enjoy seeing how people redo something with a heart in it! You'd never know that it was the same piece. Have fun with your other makeovers. ~Ann

As Candace Olsen would say, "Now that's divine!" Love the cabinet in black and all the goodies you've got displayed on it.

Can't wait to see what you do with that chair.

Great job on the cupboard. I love the old dough box in one of the old pictures. Is that the one you Mom made a stand for?

I like your cabinet both ways - you did a great job with the makeover and I really like the yellow bowls. The bathroom shelf redo is also cute!

That cupboard/hutch is one beautiful piece! And such a difference. It really makes your redware and yellow ware pop.
