Our next door neighbour was throwing away an unloved and old fashioned type of corner cupboard and asked if I wanted it......that would be a big YES! It was duly stored in the shed for a while.
Here it is in all its brown glory. It isn't solid wood but veneer. One of my daughters promptly put her initials on it for her house as I didn't really need it.
After having a scrub all over with liquid sandpaper and then primed and then a few coats of cream Laura Ashley (left over from another project) it has turned out rather well I think. The birdie was made from linen and has the same material for its breast as the curtain, so it matches in nicely with the cupboard. The metal catches were changed for some wooden ones that we already had. Daughter was thrilled with it. I had a place mentally in my head, where I could have put it in the cottage if it was a reject!
Now she can throw all her stuff in the cupboard and nobody will see it. What wonders a lick of paint and some elbow grease can create.
