There is a huge joke at our house about me and cabinets. I love all things cabinets. If I go to an auction…the cabinets are my weakness. I’d put them wall to wall everywhere in the house if there was a way I could make it look good.
If it’s wood, old, and can hold stuff…I am like a magnet to it. One of the reasons we loved this house was the wood…Kramer was addicted to them too so, that was doubly bad. We have cabinets all over the house.
This is a built-in. It’s one of the things we loved about the house when we bought it.
You’ll have to forgive the pictures. Everything is a mess at my house as the carpenters are still here working on the bathroom shower. Everything is a mess and displaced because of it. I can’t keep the floors clean as everything from the bathroom gets drug around into the other rooms. It’s a pain of remodeling.
So on with the cabinet parade.
This cabinet came with the house. It was part of the original kitchen.
This wardrobe which you can’t see was in the bathroom for storage.
We bought this one to use as part of the kitchen cabinets.
Kramer fixed this one for me to be part of the kitchen island.
Kramer redid this one. We bought it for $10. It was in a gross old basement. He did wonders with it!
This one was white and we call it the white cupboard. Craig and I stripped this one down and Kramer refinished it. This is my pantry.
We found this on an estate sale for free. Kramer redid it…I think it was white too.
I have a roll-top desk and file cabinet. The roll-top desk was useable when we got it. The file cabinet was green. Kramer redid it too.
This secretary was Kramer’s mom’s.
This wardrobe is part of our bedroom furniture.
This wardrobe is in the spare bedroom.
I have an ice box outside my sewing room.
This one is in my bathroom upstairs. I’d like to do a few touch-ups on this one.
This one is another Kramer redid…it’s in my sewing room.
Kramer did these for my laundry room.
As you can see, if it’s wood and cabinets, I have them.
Last week I went to the thrift store when I met Kelli at the hospital when Eli what there. I found yet another cabinet…
Luckily this one was little.
It is actually meant to be a doll wardrobe cabinet. So cute. I’d have loved to have this as a kid.
There’s a nice drawer on the bottom.
If you scroll back to the first picture, you can see the side door has a little chip of the veneer. I debated about buying it because of that chip. Where was I going to put it? How was I going to “fix” that chip??
In the end, the cabinet was only $5. I couldn’t pass it up. I got it home and ended up doing this…
I put it on the top of the shelving with the childcare toys. I have all sorts of vintage toys there that the kids don’t play with.
I had that vintage toy cabinet to the left in the middle before but moved that one to the left. It’s a little narrower and fits to the left better than the new one did.
Kalissa came over and I showed her the new teal cabinet. She laughed and said, “So now are you collecting little cabinets because you can’t fit any more big ones in the house??” I smiled and told her that I was just thinking as I was rearranging things that I would have room for another little one on the right!! HA!!
What can I say?? I’m a cabinet girl. Big or little makes no difference.
