Like many of you l'm sure.....l'm happiest when l have a project/s going on....especially a house project. When l first started blogging 5-ish years ago, l never would have thought l could find so MANY projects to keep the house updated and the blog going all these years, but l think having a blog and reading blogs fires up the creative flow.... then the trick is trying to get all the projects done that you WANT to get done:-), and this is even more true if you're a bit of vintage hunter since almost everything that comes home is a potential project...haha.
So over the past few weeks l've painted both the cabinets in the lounge and replaced the porcelain and glass display. The cabinet below was painted in Dulux Limed White half strength and sanded back on the raised areas....l've decorated the shelves in a 50's era theme. Another hatbox was recovered in vintage wallpaper to add to the blue one on top.
The second cabinet l'll have to show in a later post as there were just too many pics for one post.
l scrounged almost every cupboard, box and drawer in the house AND shopped my stall at the Mill to bring together all the pieces in both the cabinets.....It was a lot of fun arranging it all...l was going for a look something like an accessories cupboard in a dress shop.
There's vintage packaging including perfumes, talc and even real red lipstick from the 50's, l tried to incorporate a number of bits that have come home from Mum's place. There's even a bridal headpiece and faux flower wedding bouquet.
A carved bone fan at the back and vintage plastic earrings and brooches are in the little jewellery cabinet.....50's and 60's plastic hair slides are in the dish.
Below l've shown a couple of my inspiration pictures. These are from nostalgiaatthestonehouse.
l hope you're all having a beautiful, stress free week....thanks so much for popping in here for a visit.
Til Next Time,
