Painting a Jelly Cabinet



This jelly cabinet has been on my back porch for a long time.  I have
been using it to store old linens.  Before it gets loaded onto the moving
truck I decided to give it some updating.





The exterior was barn red with a cupboard blue interior.  
Very primitive.




So to refresh it, I painted it inside and out with a color called
Heavy Cream.  As you can see, I painted the punched tin and
the hinges as well.





It has a bit of a greenish tint in these pics, but in actual fact it is cream.
I lined the shelves with a vintage looking fabric I had left over from
a craft job.





So now I have a fresh new spot to store vintage kitchen linens.
Well that's enough of a fun break for me.  It's back to getting ready for
our move.

Happily Joining ~



Bentley  ~  your groomer Tina is coming to groom you one last time
before we move to Texas.  Be on your best behavior!  I hope that
I can find a groomer in Victoria who is an sweet and as patient as Tina
has been.

Big Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  6. Susan! It's hard to even believe that is the same piece! You completely transformed it.

    Isn't paint just amazing sometimes?

    Well done, love how you "dressed it up" for the move too.

    You will find it a happy piece where you get to where you're headin'.
