Happy Thursday Friends!
I purchased this piece back in early December from The Cotton Shed in Evansville, IN. You can find them on Instagram here. They participate in several vintage markets throughout the year - you should definitely follow them and check out their show schedule!
This winter they stocked their warehouse for an exclusive open house and I was thrilled to get this beauty! In true Amy fashion, I spotted a similar metal cabinet and asked if they happened to have any larger ones in the back - to my surprise they did! It never hurts to ask, right? :)
After taking our Christmas decor down, our living room felt so bare. I have been dreaming about putting the metal cabinet in this space for too long! Today I finally poured myself a up of coffee, brought it in (it is sooo heavy) and started styling it for winter.
I had been on the hunt for a vintage cabinet to store my chalk paint and this was a perfect solution. It has various sizes (once used in a tool shop) so I can store several different sizes of paint as well as other small decor pieces.
The cabinet really updated the look of our living room and I love that I have my paint handy now! As a bonus, I didn't have to purchase anything new to style this space. Do you ever "shop your space?" If not, I challenge you to give it a try. I feel like it helps boost creativity because you really have to think about how to work with what you already have on hand. Paint was easy for me because I needed it handy anyway. I also used a corbel Christmas ornament from Honey Homb Market which can be found here. Wood hearts were found last year at Michaels. The rest of the items were just random pieces I had around the house.
If this is your first time visiting our page, you may not already know, but we are a retailer of Jeanne d'Arc Living chalk paint and accessories. I use their products almost daily, so having them stored nearby is wonderful. Not to mention, it's visually appealing.
Someday, I hope to put this cabinet in my own workshop, but I'm loving it here for now.
Thanks so much for stopping by and supporting this little dream of mine!
