make me pretty – english country cottage cabinet

April 28, 2010

I’m afraid my mind and body were temporarily taken over by the spirit of a woman who lives in a quaint cottage in the English countryside. I don’t really know how else to explain this next piece because it’s not really my style. It’s almost shaby chic, which I do love – the more distressed the better. But the floral fabric takes it into farm house/cottage land which is not a place I usually visit. I am more thrift store chic – a little modern, a little junky, sometimes pretty, sometimes funky. But I do really love the way this cabinet turned out.

Here is the before:

And after:

And just because he hasn’t made an appearance here in a while – here is my Jasper D!



  1. Very, very nice.

  2. Wow. Jasper really looks like his mommy in that picture. I get that look whenever I ask a stupid question.

    By the way, I love that cabinet too. Let’s redo our house in the country cottage style.
