Before and After

After going thru some of my photos I found this before photo of a cupboard I bought at a public sale in the summer of 2007. I realized I never took an after shot of this great find. It was an old store fixture that the previous owner bought and when moving off the farm decided to sell it. At the time I was looking for something to replace my dresser in the bedroom but didn't know what. I really liked this piece when I saw it but thought it would go out of my price range. Well. I did get it and for a very good price, it really was in great condition and only made miner changes mostly to my taste.
There was some metal rollers on the bottom which we removed along with the doors on the bottom. I knew I wanted bark cloth added to the glass doors to hide the clothes and stuff inside, so I started searching on eBay and it didn't take to long to find what I wanted. It had to go with the peach and rust in the bedroom, and I don't care what anybody says about those colors, I love em!

I wanted big baskets to go on the bottom where the doors were, the wash baskets fit perfectly and decided to keep them there, it is handy when you need them. The twig wreaths are just a finishing touch.
