OK! I have a question for all you friends and followers? Please don't dissappoint me. I need you!
While coach and I are waiting oh, so patiently, to close on our new house on June 21st, I'm plotting and planning paint colors and furniture arrangements and 100 and 1 other details. After three weeks of packing, moving, garage selling, and decorating Mimi and Papa's new home, I'm exhausted! Yesterday I took a day of R & R and found 2 great junk stores yesterday in the downtown area. I was just looking really, when I ran across this:
It is a reproduction Welsh cupboard; 6 1/2 feet tall, 7 feet wide and only 17 inches deep! I got excited about using something like this! Great display possibilities and accessibility, without taking up too much floor space. I have a lot of old white English ironstone platters and plates I'd like to use.
I'm not crazy about the way it looks right now but could quickly see potential. I will definitely knock off the teapot and tea cup cut-outs on the center panel. So, back to my first question. What would you do with this?
I know you have all kinds of ideas, so please tell me!!!
Second question: Would you use it in the kitchen on this wall? We just purchased a 42" antique oak pedestal table to sit under the iron chandelier with four comfortable black rattan chairs w/ boxed linen cushions.
the walls are kind of a pale 'burnt butter'.
Or on this gray wall in the dining room? ( the furniture in the photo is not mine) I will have a long pine table with chairs under the chandelier.
I'd be so grateful for your thoughts and ideas. If you'd like to comment but never have....just click comment, share your thoughts, sign your name and hit 'anonymous'! Thanks so much!
