Mini Paint Project

I have finally completed a tiny project that has bugging me on my to-do list forever now!

Remember the little downstairs bathroom with the cute antique cupboard… (tiny room = bad photos, sorry!)

Well, here is the very sad, and a little scary inside of this cupboard…

So, a little paint and some pretty things to make the cupboard useful, and… viola!

The cupboard is antique, and therefore has many bumps and cracks, so it will never be “perfect,” but now its not such an eyesore. When company is over I will not be so embarrassed to let them reach in for another roll of toilet paper or necessity!

I even did a bit of decorating to the necessities in the cupboard. These antique jars got new fun lids. And a small box got a bright cover to hold small things.

Aah, much better! What do you think? More projects on the way too! 🙂

Organized Jewelry

January 8, 2009 at 9:11 am (Home Changes and Additions) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Last night I decided that I had had enough digging around for jewelry in the mornings.  Or, even worse, just not wearing my fun jewelry because it was too hard to find.  So, I organized the vintage medicine cabinet we have hung above our dresser in the bedroom.  I took a few old little shot glasses and dishes and a short candle holder and arranged some of my favorite costume jewelry.  Now everything is visible and arranged neatly.  And, the inside of the cabinet looks so pretty!

Here is the outside of the medicine cabinet.  I know you have seen this before, but this is a good angle of the chandelier crystal I used as a pull.

I found these little jars and glasses at the local Salvation Army for about 25cents.
