From the Cupboard







I'm in love with old cupboards and wardrobes.  Painted fabulous colours with beautiful door linings, wire or glass they make a wonderful addition to your storage needs - and they look gorgeous!

  3. Wow, I'd love a gorgeous cupboard like these - I would fill it with either my stash of old fabrics and laces, or maybe my tip-shop finds. Would be great!!

  9. Gorgeous pics...yet again! You always manage to take me away to another place, I sit here day dreaming for a few moments and then snap back into reality (and usually, get ready for work)! It's nice to spend a little time dreaming each day:)

  15. Oh I love these ideas, especially with the wire and the lining. It adds so much interest to a piece. Now I'm longing to try some of these ideas. -Lili

  18. Gorgeous Leigh - i have a real thing for cupboards, which is probably why i have 4 or 5 in my workshop waiting to be renovated!!

    a) no time to renovate them
    b) no more room for yet another cupboard in the house!

  19. I love your collections of beautiful things.
    I adore those cabinets...I have a lovely turquoise cupboard in my kitchen... I felt some inspiration to paint some others in my house...I don't think I could be so bold with my fireplace but something is on the horizon for it... maybe creme or gray... I am painting my piano as well...wish me luck.
