This is a homemade cupboard that sat in my mother-in-law’s basement that she used as storage for her laundry products. I always loved it and saw its potential. My mother-in-law passed away a few years ago, and when the house was sold, my husband snagged the cupboard because he knew I always admired it. It sat against a wall in our garage just waiting. When I decided to up-date my bedroom last year in a beachy, cottagey look, I knew it was time for the piece to move on up.
When I closed the Innovasion storefront in Glassboro, the things that I had there were scattered (an understatement). Some of the things went to Salem City, and a few weeks ago I hired a moving company to get them from Salem to Washington Township. One of my favorite pieces was an old stepback cupboard. I was very clear that next to the cupboard were its drawers.
Of course, the moving truck left the drawers in Salem and I have not had the time to run down there to get them. So…Cheryl had Ed build bottoms in the openings so that we can put baskets in. I am having difficulty finding exactly what I am looking for, so in the meantime these will do. Top doors are closed, because I haven’t finished shopping for what we can display in the top of the cupboard….pork and beans?
When my mother-in-law’s home was sold, my husband also snagged something for himself. It is where his father stored his stuff in the garage. I am inspired by it. It sits against the wall in our garage and I am waiting to discover where it will go in our home.
