What’s old is new again……


As we all know old houses tend to be very quirky! Some things make you scratch your head while others make you downright crazy.One of those quirky things that made me crazy was this cabinet in the living room.

It was a cute little antique cabinet that was added when the house was turned into a B&B in 1985. My husband and I debated whether it was original to the house or not for years. I knew it was not but had a hard time convincing my husband until we were given some old pictures of the house. Sure enough the cabinet was not in any of the old pictures!


The issue was not the cabinet itself but the actual placement. It was so close to the window that the drapery panels always covered part of it up. It made the corner of the living room really crowded and unbalanced looking.

Several months ago I was able to finally convince my husband to remove the cabinet in hopes of finding a different spot for it….. possibly in the dining room. It sat in storage for months until two weeks ago when my darling husband decided to tackle the cabinet and refinish it.


I realized when he was half way thru the refinishing process that the cabinet would look absolutely perfect in the upstairs hallway instead of in the dining room as planned. I was so happy that we were able to adjust the shelves to accomodate my antique blue transferware plates and platter to fit.


Before the finish on the cabinet was several different colors. We could tell someone had started to refinish it but then never finished.


Today we are finally enjoying warmer temperatures but it is VERY windy. I’m not complaining though because they are calling for cold and snow again in a couple of days…..

Have a great week my friends!
