I had my eye on this cupboard for weeks...


And then today, when I again spied it during my weekly Sunday outing to the Wrentham Country Store, I naturally assummed it was meant for me to own :)

It's simply an old vegetable crate that some wonderfully creative person thought to add shelves and a door to, embellish with charming corner and swag appliques, a picture frame and vintage ceramic knob. The best part, of course, is that they had the intuition to paint it white and then distress it just to my liking!

As I didn't quite care for the original picture that was in the frame (which you can view by clicking the Wrentham Country Store website link above and going to the "treasures" tab), I swapped it out with what you see in there now - opting to do without the glass as well.

Once my husband attaches some magnets to the inside of the door to prevent it from accidentally swinging open, the plan is to hang it in our kitchen.
