I'm sooo excited!! I finished the corner cabinet I just blogged about a day or so ago... yippee!! I can't wait for Mr. Ruffle to get his butt home and put it in the dining room for me.. hehe...
Here is the before:
Nice piece of furniture.. just VERY dated.. small ew, cuz I still like it.. just not brown.. LOL
Gorgeous white and a new glass knob...
Quite a change, eh?!
Just adding this to my LOVE, LOVE, LOVE collection.. teehee!
Well, we have the corner cabinet in the dining room now. Can you believe it's the ONLY corner in the dining room? And.. if the corner was a 1/2 an inch bigger it wouldn't of fit!! Oh my gosh, yay!! It fits!!
(Note the corner of the counter into the kitchen.. such a tight squeeze.)
I don't have it completley decorated, mostly because I need to go antiquing again so I CAN fill up the 3 shelves inside. When is an excuse to shopping EVER a problem? hehe.. I did, however, go to The Home Store yesterday and found these really cute wire baskets.
The baskets were already lined. On one, I took out the liner to show the wire off - very pretty! And the other one, I hot glued some lace around the edges and added a few cream colored buttons. Just adorable!
This afternoon I sewed up 2 little pillows.
The heart on in the basket above, and this one to go into the bigger basket:
I used leftover grain sack fabric and some really pretty rose fabric I found at a quilt shop. I turned the fabric inside out to get the faded look. I just love how it turned out.
I also found this tall metal painted bucket at The Home Store yesterday. They are really getting in some awesome finds!! I could just spend hours in that store... wait.. I do!! haha! I added the real pine branches I found on clearance from Jo-Ann Fabrics ($2.97 a bunch). I know it's not very spring looking, but, I love the frosted look of them with the white bucket. Its sitting on the floor next to my new corner cabinet.
Hope ya'll like :-)
