Well, we've been shifting cupboards around in our house over the weekend and now some of them have ended up in new places...
I used to have a glazed wall cupboard here, which housed my vintage hat collection. I always felt that it 'floated' a little with nothing grounding it, so to speak, so decided to place a dresser there instead.
Possibly it's the cleansing influence of spring, but I also felt a need to de-clutter a little too. I have placed only a few of my vintage hats back on display, accompanied by some of my favourite treasures. I shall change the hats around from time to time to freshen up the look.
Roses feature heavily, of course, as well as antique textile items.
The wall cupboard that I used to use to display my hats in has been placed on top of a small pine one in our kitchen. On Sunday I gave them a coat of eggshell paint to unify them. The ceilings are over 10ft high on this side of the house, so this has better proportions in here...so hopefully it will stay like this for some time... ;-))
I painted it grey rather than cream to tie in with the old French shutters at the window and also the small vitrine that I bought and mentioned on my blog at Christmas.
Inside I lined the back in C19th French red ticking and I have placed my glassware and 'Midwinter' polka dot china on the shelves. I may add some crochet lace edgings to the shelves, but haven't made up my mind yet...
Well, the sun is shining today and it's good to have everything feeling fresh and new and in the right place.
Have a great week,
Update: Hi Helen, Thank you for your comment. I used a Farrow and Ball paint called 'Pale Blue' - it is more grey than blue - I think the second photo looks to be more accurate, on my monitor, anyway. Their paints are quite expensive, but I would say are very good quality and come in a large range of finishes. Hope that helps, Niki x
