Hi Mustard Ceiling-ers! I’m Elizabeth from little black door and I’m jazzed to help out Elizabeth in the midst of her big move. I wanted to share a project that I couldn’t pass up, literally.
Those of you who read my blog know that I found this in the trash a few months back. Well, the side of the road to be more accurate. I pumped those brakes and jumped out to grab the sucker. Storage in the family room is always needed and a great corner cabinet for zero bucks – yes please. I loved her side moldings, her cute little kick plate and her nice bullnose edges.
But to be honest, there was a reason she was in the trash. Sister was in bad shape. I will sheild you from the horrors of her corners, baseboards and general grossness. I’ve got three words for you – Kilz Kilz Kilz.
But she buffed up pretty well. And after lots of caulk, and four coats of paint she was ready for some lipstick.
So, I went back to what my gut had told me in the first place – Kelly Green. Have I learned nothing from Oprah? Always trust your gut.
And as for the inside backs (is that even a real term?) I decided to go with a great vintage map of Manhattan.
I love the way the river runs right down that weird tall skinny shelf on the end.
Family room storage – check!
I’m always a sucker for a gallery wall.
Which gave me a great excuse to use something I’ve loved from Ampersand Design Studio for quite a while. (it is actually desktop wallpaper but I loved it so much I printed it off)
Thanks Elizabeth for letting me share and thanks everyone for reading. Come over and visit me some time!
