Vintage Pine Stepback Cupboard

Every now and then I fall so head over heels for a piece of furniture that I have to steal it for my own inventory. I've been wanting a stepback cupboard with open shelving for a while, and when I saw this handmade vintage piece, I was very very tempted to keep it for myself. The nail in the coffin was when I swapped the little enamel pulls out for antique brass pulls. After I did that, I took a step back (haha) and thought, "yup, I'm keeping this one". And it was no small feat, the piece that was previously in its place is also a stunner. I wish desperately that I had a place in my home for both!

Before and afters below! I've got it all tricked out for Autumn, and I think it will be fun to swap out the stuff on the shelves for each season!

    I'm new to your blog and just love the items you find and redo! You're keeping me inspired and I am in awe how quick you turn your beautiful pieces around:)

    Hi Kate,
    I love what you have done with this piece. I like the two tone colors you have chosen. And I especially like the fall accents/items on the shelving that are bright with color, yet still very "fall-like." Would love looking at this every day in my home. I think I will follow your lead with the brighter fall colors. Nicely done!

    The color combination is lovely. What colors and type of paint did you use?
