we have an antique cupboard and the finish was so damaged.

steve really wanted to get rid of it, but i saw potential.

and since it wasn’t a treasured heirloom, i bought a pint of aqua paint.

{but even if it was a treasure heirloom, something had to be done!!}




i went ahead and painted over the hardware

since lindsey said it was okay.

then i sanded the hardware a bit to let the metal show through.

and i sanded the corners of all the edges and doors.

and i already linked the inspiring buffet over at

hooked on houses because her painted buffet makes me so happy!




i mentioned last week, we are moving into a new home mid-june.

i am trying to purge and freshen and reuse stuff we already have.

and i found the most amazing buffet on craigslist.

i can’t wait to share it with you!
