Vintage Farmhouse Find

Some weeks I am out and about and nothing special appears.  Then there are times when I see a treasure and know it is a true find.  What fun!  I found this AMAZING vintage cabinet (which may not look too amazing here)...

but after a coat of paint, a good sand and dark wax (you can see the difference in the hue of the paint in the door where it's been applied vs. the other)...

it is again full of the charm it always had...

 the details are amazing...

even the sides are beautiful...
and who can resist the old hardware?  Love the old door clasp...

Maybe, a long time ago, it was in this old farmhouse?
OK, I am daydreaming again :)



  1. What a lovely, cool, funky, and chunky piece! Love the color your chose. I just love the lines of it. Even though its old it has a very chic almost modern look. I want it!

    1. Thanks, Maryann! This one is so hard to sell :) sometimes running this as a business is painful lol!

  2. Wow - a treasure indeed! You truly brought it back to life by highlighting all the amazing details. Lovely job!
