Stuck On Cubical Cabinets



It was love at first sight when I saw this big green cabinet in a shop down in McKinney the other day!



It's tall and wide, but very narrow...


The paint is chipped and stained and, on places like the ends, there's no paint at all...

Then there's the fact that the cubicles in this shelf don't line up like most cubicle shelves do. Most are perfect squares, but not these... 



I won't tell you Wild Bill's first thought, but my first thought was, "This would be perfect for our entryway." 

Our walls are very high so it would fit right in...if only...if only it wasn't priced at $1,000 dirt and all. 

I bought two small samples of their Vintage paint and called it a day. If only...




Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Great looking cabinet! I love the color. Keep your eyes out for a moving sale. When I lived there, the shops were always changing locations around the square. Have a great week!

    1. Preppy, this shop used to be Gray Living if you remember it. Gray Living carried fabulous stuff, but just too over priced for the area.

    1. Thank you for the permission, but you'll need to send a check too. LOL. Seriously, it is so big I don't think I could get it home, even in our pickup truck. So we are just going to have to build something like it.

    1. Lisa, you're a girl after my own heart. I think the dirt is what made me love it all the more! Wild Bill said "you would think they wud'da cleaned it up a bit!"

  6. Fabulous cabinet. Bet a handy person could make one and age it out to look very vintage if you love it so much! It would be beautiful if you don't have to have it simply because of the age!

  7. What a terrific cabinet. There is so much that you can do with it. Maybe for Mothers Day?

    Have a great week and thanks so much for your prayers.

    Hugs,

  8. I might agree with Wild Bill, although in the right place I agree they would have rustic charm. So when you going to start building your own?

    1. We are going to sell the house soon Mr. Cool, so I'm filing this idea away for a future time and place.

  11. I love it too, it conjured pictures of a bygone era. What you need is a 90% off sale...
