Vintage Etagere {China Cabinet}

A few weeks ago I shared how we were so very honored to be special Memory Keepers…you can read about it here.

If you follow me on Instagram you have been a part of seeing some of the wonderful treasures that we have been gifted with. {If you’d like to follow on instagram here’s my handle: cottageintheoaks}

We now have a huge storage room full of wonderful vintage and antique furniture and items that we have lots of fun ideas of what we’d like to do with……here’s  a look at the first one that we’ve tackled.

Here she is…when we found her.

Found treasure - Vintage Etagere

Forlorn. Standing on her head. Needing a bath and some TLC.

How do I know she was a she? It was the curvy legs.

She was missing her door…but that didn’t bother us a bit.

Found treasure - Vintage Etagere

Here she is in her new home….the dining room. Handsome has repaired her badly damaged, curvy leg…and built her two new shelves, and a new bottom, since her original ones were missing.

We’ve scrubbed and cleaned her up….and was so happy to find out she has vintage, wavy glass! We’ve been letting her settle into her new surroundings for a few days now….and this week she will be getting a coat of Paris Grey. She’s excited.

And then she will be the keeper of all of our white dishes and serve ware.

Can’t wait to show you the finished product! {Actually, I can’t wait to see it myself.} ;)

What are you up to this week?

Blessings~

    Ohhhhhh, she is gorgeous! I don’t know if she needs any earrings (knobs/pulls) or not, but I was at a local store here in CA and they had beautiful pulls on the cabinet they had purchased from Anthropologie. Even better, she got them on sale! The Ripe Melon Pull gave just a hint of contrast and not too much bling. You probably know the site already but just in case:

    And nooooooo, I’m not a salesperson! Just a Cottage fan.

    Blessings all.
