A Quick Change in the Cabinet

Hi all!

You know my new white cabinet I showed you the other day…the one I brought home from Texas.  Well, I have already changed her up a bit and am loving the little change.

When I first brought her home, I had metal locker baskets in the front cubby area.  They just seemed too dark in there for me and didn’t make much of a statement.  I had to come up with something different and decided to use another Texas treasure.

Take a look at what I put in there and tell me what you think.

I found this beautiful old ice cream freezer at the Canton Flea Market.  Love the wood, the rusty metal and even that great green strip there on the front.

Now, that looks like summer to me!

I also filled up my great old crock with my small collection of rolling pins.  I love the little bit of texture, height, and interest they add.

Much better….

Take a look HERE if you want to and see how I changed it up a bit.

I hope you have all had a wonderful Friday and that your weekend is full of blessings.

Chat again soon, friends….

Linking up tonight at Donna's at Funky Junk

So cool! I love this - such a great way to exhibit your collection of rolling pins. I will admit what caught my eye the most was that little crown on the crock holding some of your rolling pins. I love that crock, especially with the crown as the finishing touch.

Hope your weekend is full of blessings too, Amy!

I've been poking around and just love your effortless style! I so aspire to decorate like this ...

... but in the end I feel compelled to fix and paint the vintage rust and broken. It's a curse.

If you haven't already, you should check out my lovely blog friend Eclectically Vintage. You two are two peas in a pod!


Hope you have a lovely weekend!

It's really showcased in that spot Amy! My eye was immediately drawn to your crock, it looks great with the rolling pins in there. I finally sold my vintage rolling pin collection last fall market, I still have a couple I kept.

Love it! What a treasure! Gotta find me a little nook to fill with a few of my favorite more rustic finds.

Love the change up - it looks great and right at home. Of course I loved the other way, too. You have such a knack for pairing things together!
