Drinks Cabinet - Re purposed and Reborn



I love a bargain and this drinks / display cabinet is defiently a bargain!



Herself has taken over the bottom shelf for toys and thankfully can't yet reach the higher shelves and doors! 

 


She cost my €50 in Oxfam Home, Dublin.
Probably €20 to get her home in petrol
Paint was free (left over from other projects) 
Vintage wallpaper was free (gifted to me from an interior design shop) 
Knobs were around €3 each (I picked them up in Austria when I was on a painting residency




 It\s great  to finally be able to display car boot finds (vintage telephone, vintage plates) along with some fab wedding presents we hadn't been able to display before (Mosses pottery plates and bowls, Killarney crystal glasses etc)

And paintings from Mary Hoare, Laura De Búrca, TimsSally and my newest purchase from Marriane Wolf (Mon Petit Pois)




I'm sorry I didn't take a before pic but she was a big dark ominous beast in the room! Lets just say himself was none too happy when I brought her home! But he did the majority of the hard work with her and I'm so in love!
