Little vintage cupboard

One day BellaMomma told me about an old cupboard she spied at a yardsale. It was an old children's cupboard- meant for play. It was white. It was chippy. But she didn't have the $15 on her at the time so she left it behind and asked the seller to hold onto it for her. She would be back.

Or her daughter would happen upon the same yardsale soon after and swoop up the cupboard. And in my defense- it was like a week later.

I'll leave a little space here to insert the comment that I know is coming sometime today. I bet she tells a different story. Love you, Mom.

I brought it home and put it on an old vanity that....um, BellaMomma bought for me a long time ago. That seems ironic or funny or sad or wrong or something like that.

But here it is. Please note the paint-by-numbers on the top. Apparently she was going back for that too. Oops.

Vintage cupboard goodness

Really?

What a cute posting! I love what you've done with the cupboard and that paint-by-number piece is wonderful! I also like that way you have displayed at old photo inside the jar. Sure gives me some ideas!
Have a wonderful day.

This is just precious - I love the old Scottie figurine and the picture/embroidery in the jars. You are such a clever decorator.

You have the best ideas. I'd have never in a million years thought to put a tea towel or picture in a mason jar. Hmm...now you got me thinking.

I'm getting excited for October (wink!) You'll be a hit.
