~July 1st Pics of the Shop So Far~ 50% off everything on the website

This cupboard was taken out of an old house in the Lisbon/Mt. Vernon area. It was originally a built-in. IT'S HUGE!!! And is my FAVORITE PIECE!!! I paid $450 for it a few years back in hopes of some day opening a shop and using it for display. MY HOPES AND DREAMS are COMING TRUE!!!! Not only did I get this cupboard decorated, (I am washing, drying, ironing and cleaning EVERYTHING before I put it out for sale) I started setting up the OVAL Shabby Chic Dining Table too!!! Can't wait for that to come together!!! Did you know you can click on any of these pictures and they will open in a BIGGER window so you can see the treasures better.
I used an ANTIQUE VICTORIAN SHEET for the top cover of the cupboard, the middle area with the mirror just has old lace fabric from the bolt on it and if you look at the drawer below, you will see a GORGEOUS Vintage Roses Pillowcase folded and hanging out of the drawer!!!! LOVE IT!!!!



I'm Having the TIME OF MY LIFE!!!
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY TO EVERYONE!!! See you this weekend!!!!
Hugs and Love, Amy
