I've just finished painting a lovely solid cupboard and as I was taking photos of it to sell, I thought perhaps I should keep it?? Help me decide....
The new one
Great storage: These are beautiful quilts that are made by the women in my family. The top is a little blanket my mum made, then next is a quilt my aunt made, on the bottom shelf on the top is the beautiful Thousand Triangles quilt my mum made me for my 30th birthday and then underneath that is a quilt I made out of Laura Ashley material that I started when I was 17 and then found it and finished when I was 40. I will have to share all these quilts and more one day.
The painting in the wooden frame is one I did when I was living in London in 2002. It's of a little corner of the inside of Saint Bartholomew the Great, which is one of London's oldest churches. It was founded in 1123 as an Augustinian Priory and has been in continuous use as a place of worship since at least 1143.
I replaced the original handles with these vintage French crackle porcelain ones.
The cabinet when I bought it - minus the Spanish style round iron handles.
and here is how the hall was previously. I think my husband will vote for the new one as he's never been that keen on this one.
What do you think?
