Hubby's Newest Project

He has been working on this for a while, and just completed it, and I LOVE it! It is a Hoosier Cabinet, from around the 1930's, and we bought it at an antique store about a year ago. It was in need of some work at the time, so hubby sanded it down, repaired any wood that needed it, then repainted it a glossy buttercream color. The picture does not show it's color that well, the bottom of the cabinet looks too pale in the pic. He put new red ceramic knobs on all the doors and drawers, and lined the inner part of the cabinet with red check gingham that we bought on Ebay.

We moved it into the kitchen and it looks great in the spot I chose for it. We painted the kitchen a light shade of jadeite green (of course I have a collection of Jadeite too :) and the colors work perfectly together. This cabinet is so useful, I can't wait to fill it up with all my knick knacks and doo dads!
