When I posted the photo above on my Junkologie site, someone asked me if it had been used for chickens. I actually think it was used to hold various nails and other tools. There is one cubby that is labeled "brads"...as in brad nails. I also found lots of nails when I was cleaning it. And boy was that a task!
After hosing it down and scrubbing it, I hauled it inside by myself. Yes, myself. Why? I was alone and I wanted it moved! From the driveway, up a flight of deck stairs, through the patio door, through the living room, and into the dining room. How did I do it? With a dolly and a lot of ingenuity! Let's leave it at that!!
So, now when you walk in through the kitchen, you catch a glimpse of this aqua blue beauty.
As you round the corner...
You might notice that I flipped it upside down so that I had shelves instead of cubbies. I thought it would be perfect to display my white dishes, the set of china from my grandmother, and various glass and seashell items.
What do you think? I love the aqua hue, the beadboard, and the rustic nature...a time-worn warmth that would be perfect for any beach cottage. The only thing left is to move to somewhere with a warm, sunny beach! :)
Join the fun!
