Last July, I came clean and admitted that I took part in the "country" decorating of the 80's. You can read about it here. I had a corner shelf that I painted white and the inside was painted a soft yellow. We thought that we didn't want painted furniture then, everything had to be stained wood.
There were some things that I held onto for one reason or another. This piece belonged to a friend of mine and I always admired it. She gave it to me about 15 years ago. V called it a spice cabinet. It has been upstairs for some time now, then I thought that I should give it a second look. My husband brought it downstairs last night.
The piece looks dated, but I still like it. Maybe it just needs an update? I love it except for the heart cut out in the bottom section. What were we thinking then?
Opinions please. What would you do with it? Give it a coat of paint? What color would you choose? What would you do with the heart cut out? I would like to give this well made piece a new life. It will be in my kitchen. The walls are a soft yellow and the trim is white. My kitchen cabinets are white also. We live in an old farmhouse and I have tried to keep with that theme throughout the house.
Tell me what would you do with this piece. How would you give it a new life? I can't decide what to do with it.
