A Curio Cabinet Make Over

This little wall cabinet turned into a recent project.
It was a little ugly and needed it's broken handles
replaced.  I thought it would be a fun to fix it up!


I started with painting over the lettering.


And painted a pretty little berry vine in the top.


I had the vintage porcelain knobs in my work room
and they fit perfectly!



Now it's ready for a new owner to fill with little treasures!

It's in the etsy shop if you are interested!
Just click on the link on my sidebar.

  12. I tried to comment earlier, but it got lost in translation.

    I was saying you are the best at transformations. Just love, love, love the berry vines. Perfect with those little white knobs.

  13. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little
    more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
