make me pretty – the happy cabinetDecember 7, 2011
I came across this cabinet in the alley while I was taking my kids for a walk. It was kind of heartbreaking seeing it in the trash considering someone had hand painted the door. (I also get kind of upset when I see peoples artwork at the thrift store.) Of course, light houses aren’t really my thing but I could at least save the cabinet.
I had to bribe Jasper to get him to give up his seat in the stroller so I could roll the cabinet home but I just can’t pass up free solid wood furniture.
At first I thought I would do a stencil on the door but then I remembered some Lotta Jansdotter paper place mats my friend Corbin had given me. I could cut one for the middle panel and I already had some yellow paint that would match perfectly!
