A Small Vintage Cupboard.














A few weeks ago I snapped up this gorgeous vintage cupboard from the lovely Katherine from theoldboathouse. I found it at their space in the Cottage Garden Nursery and knew I had a little nook for it. I didn't buy it straight away, but I did have to ring Katherine up the next day to ask her to put a sold sticker on it for me. Have you ever done that? Really fell in love with something in a store, hummed and hahhed, slept on it and gone back the next day?

I love the original look of this cupboard as it is now and wouldn't dream of painting it. It is perfect just as it is.

It is just lovely! I certainly wouldn't dream of painting it either.
Beautifully decorated too!

That's a very cute table. Those little glass birds remind me of my grandmother. She had one similar.

Beautiful styling, Pammie.

I think I might get Katherine on speed-dial too

Great cupboard. Katherine always has a good selection doesn't she? I swear there's at least one thing from Katherine in every room of this house! xx

I love the little cupboard. I wish Katherine shipped to Canada. Not really I'd be broke! Your flowers are beautiful as usual.

It really is a beautiful little piece and I love the shade of it. I would probably have snapped it up right away!! ;-D

I'm glad you didn't paint it. It really is perfect the way it is. All those flowers arranged in those buckets are beautiful. Bring on Spring!

Pam,
there are just some things that need to be left as they are, and that little cabinet is one of them! It's so cute just the way it is and that color goes with just about anything. Everything else is lovely also, great job!

I have bought many things from darling Katherine, she always has the perfect shabby stuff. Love the cupboard.

I have done that many times. I figure that if I go back the next day or week and the thing I want is still there then it was meant to be mine in the first place!

I'm glad that you brought it home with you eventually-it's lovely!

Best wishes,
Natasha.
