Show and Tell

I have been looking for the perfect piece to put in an area of my kitchen. It is just a small area and the basement door is on one side and the door to the deck on the other. I have several things I can use but they are all so deep that it interferes with the doors. Last Sunday after going to a craft show I stopped in a small town with some nice shops. One large shop has clothes, knick knacks, vintage and antique stuff and a guy was unloading a truck with some furniture pieces.I found the perfect piece! I love that the hinges are all painted over andthe vintage latch. I love that it is rustic and I love the color. It is the perfect height to work well with the beadboard and only about 7 inches deep.
The perfect piece!
For more Show and Tell go over to Kelli's House.

I LOVE that piece! It's perfect - and that little chubby bird? Too too custe. I see you have similar tastes to mine when it comes to old, chiip, painted-over things. Beautiful, huh?

It just seems like it was "made" just for you and to sit right there. It really is perfect just the way it is.

When I started to read, I was so nervous that you were going to say you planned on painting this piece. (WHEW! You love the color, too!) I just moved to Germany (and started blogging!) and would love to run into a treasure like the one you have here. Love it!

Wonderful color! You were so lucky to find a piece for that tight spot. I bet it will be fun to decorate the top through the seasons.
