Hi, everyone! Hope you had a wonderful July 4th!
While junkin' last week, my mom and I came across a 'cubby thing' (my official term for it) that I thought was so fun, and quite a bargain. It was grubby and dirty and had a nasty cardboard piece nailed to the back of it (sounds like a real jewel, huh?) My mom even tried to dissuade me from getting it.
But I loved the soft green color and I saw its potential, so it came home with me.
Keith helped me rip off the yucky back, then he hosed it down and I scrubbed it with bleach water.
I wish I would've thought to take a before picture, but I'm really happy with how it cleaned up!
Even though it's far from perfect, I still love it! I think it looks cute in this corner of our sunroom.
I thought it'd be a great way to display some of my ironstone pieces, starting with this sweet little tureen that was one of my birthday presents from my mom!
While out of town a couple of months ago I purchased a trio of doors that was once on an old icebox. I loved their chippy patina, and they had that great green color that I'm lovin' again!
I leaned the largest one on the top of the cubby, then added a ceramic Madonna and a vase of dried hydrangeas.
Next I added a pair of pitchers and another tureen.
I recently showed you these pitchers that I got at the flea market for a steal. I think they have such pretty lines, and the bottoms have a name and date etched into them, indicating that they were hand made.
In the next cubbies I placed yet another tureen and a stack of grainsacks...
...then a couple more grainsacks topped with a little plant, and another tureen...
...and finally on the bottom, another pitcher and some chippy white flower pots.
So that's my little 'cubby thing' in all its glory!
I'm glad that I took a chance on this diamond in the rough.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy your day :)
