This tiny glass fronted cupboard is a tobacco cabinet, according to the man on the market who sold it to me. It was very battered when I bought it, in an unappealing brown wood, under years of grime. I took it home, cleaned it thoroughly and gave it a coat of Annie Sloan chalk paint. I made a little rose curtain for the front panel and lined the inside with wallpaper and an old map. This is destined for my annual sale on May 6th.
There is a small side bar, with slots for cigars. But I think paintbrushes would be better.
I love the bobbly trim. Wow, it felt good to be doing a bit of making. I have been on a series of deadlines, badly timed for the Easter holidays. It's such a relief to have finished for a few days. I popped into our nearest town today with my son and I found a few small buys. These shoes are from a shop called QS. They were £5.99 and have more than a bit of Cath about them.
I fell in love with it, and convinced myself it would be great for work, toting my notebooks around.
I bought some very pretty oil cloth as well, which is going to be used for a table makeover. I'm hoping to do it this weekend, when hopefully, I will be back on my blog a bit more frequently than I have been recently.
Have a great weekend.
