Life's Little Projects!

Rummaging around in the car port last week, I came across this old, small cupboard...unused and unloved! ;-(

I think Dear DH found it years ago, in a cupboard. I've no idea why it was made or for what it was used.

Enter...



I love the Cooking Apple Green colour!

I just don't know what to do with the cupboard..any ideas gratefully appreciated;-)

Whilst it was drying I had a bit of fun with some jam jars and various transfers!


Now all I want to do now is sit down and read my huge pile of these!

The cupboard looks great - I love the green colour. It looks a handy little size for a corner - maybe you could keep a supply of candles and tealights and associated bits and pieces in it.

I wish I could find such brilliant treasure in my own garage - sadly it's mainly outgrown plastic toys.
What a transformation!

I know exactly what you can do with your cupboard!
You can deliver it to me in Bath and I will use it in my conservatory (plastic box on back of house) to put all my gardening tools in... Just what I have been looking for! AND it matches my cooking apple green Lloyd Loom sofa...
only joking but nice thought!

It turned out so cute!! I'm positive you will find the perfect use for it (do we ever have enough storage??) Maybe you could use it to store your beautiful garden mags and pretty new jars! lol

You could keep your cooking apples in it! I love that green. I am going to be painting my kitchen door that colour too.

Great little cupboard and I think it would be nice as a side table in a bedroom. I just bought a garden magazine today and my monthly magazines subscriptions are arriving. I’m a magazine junky. Have a wonderfully weekend and happy gardening too. : )

What a great makeover, the colour is perfect. Can you show it stocked with goodies?

Shirley said...

What a lovely little cupboard and you've made it look fab. I think it would look great in a bathroom stuffed to the gills with soaps, bath bombs and flannels.

Have a great weekend .... :0)

oh its lovely! Im sure you'll suddenly find a use for it out the blue one day..and I really like what you did with those jars!

What a transformation. It looks so different. I can just picture it in a rustic french farmhouse house jam jars full of homemade preserves. Yummy. Sorry it probably doesn't help much with what to do with it.

Fancy finding a cupboard in a cupboard! I keep meaning to get round to doing these sorts of projects and never do. Your jam jars will look lovely as nightlights in the garden. Great finished projects. I see you are still teasing us with those interesting looking Garden magazines. x

Lovely little cupboard, I suspect it has a million uses.

Think your probably right about the garden, although it did have some beautiful roses in it that I would like.

I tried to see how much your fabrics are, but they are covered up by all the different buttons and I can't see!

drop me an email? zoelynch[at]unknowndomain[dot]co[dot]uk

Thanks!

I love that colour paint, it's one of my favourites!! Now if I only I could come up with a cupboard like that when I'm rummaging! How about keeping all those magazines inside it?

Hello, thanks for stopping ny my blog and leaving a comment - hope the housework got done eventually :) You have a lovely blog - I've enjoyed reading your last posts - how wonderful to have a plant stall outside your house. I love Penstemons. I think your little cupboard looks lovely in the pale green I can see it full of little jars and bottles full of treasures :)

The little cupboard looks great, you could maybe use it as a bedside cabinet?

I noticed you also got the lovely LA £3.50 throw! :-)

Gosh, what a find - it's lovely. Love the colours too.
