I'm breaking away from the bedroom makeover to show you another project I've been working on.
This fun corner cabinet was something I picked up from a neighbor.
I've been admiring it in their garage (!) for awhile now, and recently she called and asked if I'd like it.
Things just hadn't panned out for the project they had in mind.
Here's the before:
Once I got the idea rolling in my head, it came together pretty quickly.
Removing the glass panels that were in the top portion, I added in some black and white ticking stripe fabric. The inside is finished off in a white rope trim.
I left the insides white, just for some pop. The vintage Underwood typewriter was a major find (thanks to my 11 year old- I seriously need to start paying her "finder fees"!!) ...and I knew I would be displaying these two together.
The knobs are from Anthropologie- don't you love the graphic element it adds? The bottom knobs are oil rubbed bronze, and I wanted those to blend in more and have the highlight on top.
Lots of fun storage with adjustable shelving.
Loading it up to take down to the shop this afternoon!
(along with the typewriter and a few other vintage goodies...)
Do you ever get in those kicks where you just want to use something over and over again in your projects? I have a thing going with the ticking stripe right now. One other piece that is coming with me today is this:
This whopper is a little over 4 feet tall!
It started out as a very large framed vintage piece of art.
I didn't care for the artwork, but loved the size of the frame!
A little more black over some of the gold, and it looks great.
This can be used vertically or horizontally- I'm leaving it up to whoever buys it to decide! :)
Some more plans with the ticking in the near future- one of my wish list items will be making it's way home next week!
