{ Kitchen Corner Cabinet ..}

Happy Friday!!! Big woo hoo for the weekend, right?! It's supposed to be perfect 60 & sunny Saturday & we're hoping to get a few things done { more on that later } ! One thing that I'm really excited for is we finally are visiting the Cider mill!! I can't believe it's October 2nd & we haven't visited one..not like us crazy fall lovin' people haha!Speaking of fall, the other day while I was decorating & switching stuff out it occurred to me that I never blogged my very first vintage furniture piece I DIY'd!! It was back in 2008 when we still lived in our quaint 1 bedroom top floor condo{ that I loved!} !!! My husband actually found the piece while working & he paid a co-worker to help him bring it upstairs!! He knew I had been wanting one of these corner cabinets, but this one was better then any of the store or catalog ones I spotted before! This was before blogging or decorating, so I didn't know about antiques or vintage goods like now..This was originally a dark wood with a tint of hickory color & I painted it!! I still love that it's white, but I'm thinking I might be doing some changes.  I thought I better show you guys now before she changes haah! This corner cabinet is from the 1950's & it's seriously one of my, if not favorite piece!!! 


"She's" painted a pure white with ..wait for ittttt, regular non-chalk paint hahaha! I know, nuts right?! I wish I knew about the chalk paint products back when...Hint hint!!!


Obviously in these pictures  she's decorated for fall, but it's honestly a great piece for any occasion! I keep extra seasonal dishes in the bottom & up top for display !  I love decorating with it!!




I never remember collecting pitchers etc..but  somehow I have acquired quite a few..!






This piece fit like a glove in our dining area! I'm not going to lie, I'd be pretty upset if she didn't have a spot .. P.S. My new favorite random mix..fresh baby's breath & white pumpkins!!!!


I hope you guys get some inspiration from this little throwback piece & some simple decorating ideas too!  I can't believe it's already OCTOBER..just blows my mind! I hope you all are doing fun  things this weekend..Take it all in & enjoy!!!!!

Happy weekend!
