This post comes with a confession. I took part in the "country decorating" movement in the 80's. Yes I did, (hanging head in shame) but my friends did too. They are just not admitting it. Blue and mauve, hearts, geese, hats with flowers on them and floppy eared bunnies. Yep, those things were in my home.
I held onto a few things that I loved, even though they are dated. This corner cabinet was one of those things. My friend V gave it to me after she was finished with it, I used it for awhile, my aunt used it, my daughter used it and now it is in my house again. I decided it was past time for an update.
I dragged her outside and gave her a good scrubbing and a fresh coat of paint. The door was removed for painting, the heart cut out makes it look a bit, okay a lot dated don't you think?
I painted the outside white and the inside a pale yellow.
This cabinet is now respectable again and holds a few of my blue and white pieces. It was hard to get pictures, the weather has not been cooperative.
The door may remain off. There is the issue of the heart cut out, patching the hole is an option. My concern is that it will not look right. What would you do? Leave the door off, repair the cut out, or just paint it and put the door back on?
