A little more of the dark timber

Saturday, March 07, 2009

Well this is an old cupboard at the end of my kitchen.. We found it in very bad disrepair for $10 at a school fete and Geoff turned it into a cupboard that stores wine with my favourite ironstone basins on the shelves above... Near the apron hanging on the wall is the door to our tiny wee bathroom, it is all timber as well.... I have painted a piece of ply wood with black chalk board paint and written one of my Mum's favourite recipes.... The pine chair came from my Nanna's house!!!
