My cupboard. It has been quite the relationship, she and I have come a long way. I’ve loved her, I’ve hated her, and now I love her again. From the moment my carpenter husband framed up our new rooms within what once was our sitting room, I knew the end of that newly created hallway was screaming for a built in. Don’t you agree? This is the before:
Then I saw this in BHG:
So my husband sketched this one for me to fit into our space:
And then I fell in love with this chalk paint board from Barb’s studio (the one in the middle):
And so after the cupboard was built and installed, I painted it:
And within seconds of my husband attaching the hardware to the completely finished piece, I turned toward him and said “I hate it”.
So I completely repainted it (again, using chalk paint). This time I added a touch of sass with one of Melanie Royals designs, the back of the cupboard was done using a zebra stencil. You can click here to see where I got mine.
Now I love her again, and she is perfect crammed full of white dishes.
PS: I saved the best for last, see you on Friday !
