Is she CRAZY??

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

A friend of my sister asked her if I'd be interested in having this 1930's era corner cabinet for the farmhouse.

In need of a good cleaning and some fresh white paint but none-the-less I SAW the beauty.

Who could resist the NATURAL cracklin' white and aqua paint?

There was no other way but to paint a fresh coat of the white BUT the aqua remained untouched.

With the addition of four HALF-shelves, I was able to double the storage space. It worked out perfect for the bottle height of all my craft paints!

Lace inserts for the door fronts and shelf edges....

Some stencils and Graphics Fairy decals

How NEAT is this?

Perfect Cabinet for a perfect corner in my perfect little farmhouse!

In a GOOD way, I'd say my sister's friend IS crazy. But I sure love to be on the receiving end when  "one person's trash is another person's treasure".  I also love it when I get to use my 3 R Rules !

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit today! We love having company.

Au revoir,

Love the cabinet! I would like to see a picture with the cabinet doors closed, the finished product. I looked several times and didn't see one.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We sure had one with the family up in Florence, Al. Did you see the pictures of the twin girl's I posted on Face Book? They are beautiful inside and out!

You are one of the most gifted people I know. You need to have your own T.V. show. The cabinet it awesome, as well as, all the other things you've done to the farmhouse. AMAZING!!!

What a gift, in every sense of the word! You've given it new life, new purpose and I'll bet you'll smile every time you look at it.

What can I say but, "Girl, you have done it again."
That is beautiful!!! You have a gift that makes me a little jealous. It's Talent.... Pure TALENT. You did a beautiful job. Jacque, you are so blessed to be able to take something ready to be firewood and turn it into a real site of something so pretty and useful. To echo a couple of the other ladies...You could have your own show and if you did, I for one, would be watching. And I would love to see a picture of the doors closed.
Great job Girl Friend. :)

Looks Great! I love corner cabinets. I settled for one that was not while looking for one.

What a gift, a corner cabinet is sooo hard to find, I have a corner that is just waiting for an old shelf...Someday I will find one, the hunt is the fun! Oh and it had the perfect crackle and age!

WOW, what a deal. Cheap is good, free is better. But your hard work really paid off. You have so many talents. The cabinet was made just for that corner. TL
