Several years ago, she gave me both the tea set AND the cabinet - (I have such an awesome grandma!).
However, I had two problems .... 1) I'm not really the display-a-little-tea-set-in-my-house type, and 2) the cabinet was painted a green color that didn't even come close to fitting into the color scheme of my house.
So, I put the tea set away for safe-keeping .... and the cabinet was left in the garage until I could figure out what to do with it.
And the other day, I finally figured out what its purpose would be!
Bathroom Storage! .... a place to keep my hair and beauty products that was keeping in the theme of my vintage-lovin' style.
So I went to work with my faithful friend, Heirloom White by Rustoleum. :-)
And now ....
.... and a did a little sanding and distressing (of course), too.
To go along with this storage piece, I took an old wooden carrier, colored it the same perfect color, and stenciled on the word "simple" with brown acrylic paint.
(Oh, and I spray painted the lid of the little cracker jar to match, too - and filled it with Q-tips.)
I just love how it all turned out!
