So enough with that rant. Here's a very neat piece that I got on Sunday and simply could not wait to get started on. It's an antique c.1915 oak side-by-side cupboard, a form I've never encountered before. Since it's horrible and cold outside, I made it as springy as possible. I painted the case in a custom mixed creamy and cheerful yellow named 'Afternoon Glow', and painted the interior and knobs in cream. Finally, I painted winding branches of blooming magnolia in the corners of the door, both because I felt the simple lines required a little something extra, and because I am, if you couldn't tell, quite distressed about the loss of this year's magnolia blooms.
This is one of those excellently versatile pieces, and would be brilliant in a bathroom, in a bedroom, or really anywhere that one might need extra storage. All the shelves are adjustable too, and it comes with the original working skeleton key!
