~THANKS MOM~

~THANKS MOM~
JUST THE BEST BLUE/GREEN DUCK EGG COLOR INSIDE

TONS OF DETAILS INCLUDING THE RIBBING DOWN BOTH SIDES OF THE FRONT


What a wonderful surprise to see my Mom show up with this darling vintage cupboard.

She said I needed a "pick me up" after the week I have been through and she bought this for me at one of our local thrift stores yesterday. She knows me SOOOO WELL!!!

It is already painted white (although it needs a bit of scrubbing) and the inside is a delicious blue/green robin egg color. There is a small piece of wood missing off the front door but I believe I am going to cover the top and the doors with vintage fabric.....Shabby Roses of course!!! I might replace the knobs with some vintage milk glass ones or maybe even some of the pink cut glass knobs I already have. I will just have to wait and see once I add the fabric to it.

The details are awesome from the ribs on the side, to the little cut out curves on each leg. The doors are perfect and I can't wait to get started on this little dear. THANKS MOM!!! You always know how to make me smile!!!! Love you tons!!! ~Amy~
