Hi Dear Friends,
I thought I would share photos of this medicine cabinet with you. I purchased it at an outdoor antique sale about 4 years ago. As soon as I saw it, I liked it. Over time, with fixing up my last house and life becoming crazy, it was packed away. When I moved to my current house 2 years ago, it was unpacked and I admired it all over again. But...being overwhelmed setting up a new house, I decided I would just get rid of it and sell it at a garage sale. I had paid $8.00 for it.
At the time I purchased it, I think I was just beginning to become interested in the shabby look in decor. I already loved old things and primitive country decor but my tastes hadn't developed to where they are now.
Last summer or fall, my tastes began to change a bit more. While looking at blogs with farmhouse decor, I instantly fell in love with the style and desired that look in my own home. With living in a farmhouse that is over 100 years old, I thought the farmhouse style would be perfect. I mentioned to my hubby a few times to not let me sell the medicine cabinet that's packed away in the barn. I wanted to have another look at it before making a decision.
Last weekend, I started rummaging through some boxes in the barn as we're hoping to have a yard sale this year (although I don't know if we can pull it together in time). As I emptied a few boxes, there it was! I have so much more appreciation for this cabinet now as it definitely works with the farmhouse look that I want to achieve. Off to the house it went.
The chippy paint is just wonderful!
It appears to be homemade. The paint is an old, antique kind of white which fits perfectly.
It looks like someone may have started to sand the top of it at one time.
It still needs a good clean up on the inside but I thought I would leave it as is for the photo. It helps it show it's age more.
I'm looking forward to hanging this cabinet up and taking one more step toward reaching my farmhouse dreams.
Have a wonderful week
