~White Wednesday # 83~


I couldn't wait to share this wonderful primitive cupboard I recently purchased. It is white, chippy and aged to perfection, not to mention it weighs a ton. They just don't make these like they used to. So the story behind this cupboard is......every once in a while I'll get on Craigslist in hopes of finding a primitive cupboard and usually don't have any luck or they are asking too much. This particular day I find one that is amazing and in my price range so I email to see if they still have it. Wouldn't you know that when she replies it's actually someone I know......the ever so talented Natalie from Sparrow. This cupboard is perfect and I love that it came from someone I know and she told me they brought it back from Texas. So now I can say I own a piece of history all the way from good ole Texas and I didn't even have to go to Marburger to get it(even though I'd love that opportunity some day).

I really couldn't wait to share this beauty with you, so I didn't even have time to fill all the shelves yet. Here are a few shots of some things I just put together this afternoon and when time allows I'm going to go through my ironstone stash and fill her up. I might put some brown transferware also. I'm up for suggestions.....what would you fill this cupboard with? Enjoy! xoxo K.



This is an oldie....true beadboard and old hardware.

This is a shot taken through a mirror on the opposite wall.

  11. I LOVE the old primitive stuff! Can't help myself. You can always tell the really old ones because they weigh so much. I have some old primitive pieces I don't think I could ever part with. Congrat's on the good find!

  18. OMG! I love this piece. It looks like it isn't very deep which I love since it doesn't take up a lot of space into the room. I adore the white pitchers lined up.
    Wonderful White find!

  31. Hi Kathleen
    That cupboard is amazing... I have been suffering over one myself. I saw it on a shopping trip last week and have been going back and forth on it... seeing yours makes me want to call and say I'll take it.
    Thanks for another WW

  43. LOVE that cupboard,
    Kathleen! Really,
    anything from white
    and silver to.....dare
    I say it....colorful,
    like Fiesta Ware, would
    look great piled up in
    that beauty. I could
    also see some great black
    and white images in little
    frames mixed in. Have
    a blast with it!

    PS: I visited your booth
    at Monticello over X-mas
    before I got the flu. If
    I lived there I totally
    would have bought the giant
    metal letters that spell out
    JOY. What a fun place; I
    plan to visit again, this summer,
    or earlier, if I make it out
    before July....

  44. A serendipitous encounter for you ... sounds to me like you were meant to have that cupboard! Its perfect, isn't it? I think ironstone and your transferware collections would be perfect in it. How about the idea of adding in some old silver pieces for juxtaposition?

    Kimberly

  45. What a beauty~and you even know where it comes from. How special. I say fillit with your ironstone...maybe some mercury glass and silver!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Well, you had me hooked with the chicken wire, it gets me every time, what a lucky find!!!

    This is my first attempt at WW, though I've pondered it many times...guess I'm just hooked on white...or anything old, truth be told!

    Though I'm not too crazy about the new white blanket laid in my yard last night...YUCK!!!

  71. Beautifully chippy, great wire. This cupboard would make a great little bar the way the shelf sticks out further than the rest and that short little shelf in the back. How fun that it's previous owner was someone you knew. Small world or is it that blogging is making our world bigger? I love it when stuff has a little fun story to go with.
