Tuesday Display Chain Re Do


Todays theme for display chain is Re Do.As most of you know I've been redoing the house and only keeping the things I love. I've been trying to simplify for a looooong time now,but I get attached so easily (that goes for things,animals and people LoL)...Well as some of you remember a few months ago I bought the antique red one door cupboard at auction and hubby redid it for me.So you get a glimsp of the living room remodel (more later) and the cupboard re do...

The cupboard before....

Lots of peeks inside.Click on pics to enlarge if you want...I've had the crow penny rug a few years but never had a place to display it.Finally the right place...
See no fluff.Just simple things I love...The antique horse has a large rocker as well but still no room for it so it's in the loft....Looking for a little firkin to complete the stack..Love the blue bonnet my sweet friend Lecia made...
See the pretty tan color on the walls.Lowes fixed it.Remember the lady mixed it in the wrong base and sent me home with that was pink/greyish.Thanks Frank for making it right....


Hope you all enjoyed the pics of the cupboard re do and a peek of the remodel.Now hop over to Misi's http://1890gablehousemusings.blogspot.com/ and join in or just visit everyones displays for the week.Oh and fleamarket was chilly and windy but we did ok.Going this week again but I think the weather is going to be so much nicer over 60 and sunny.I of course didn't stay put but didn't find much did find a putz and old clothes dryer the kind that hangs on the wall and folds up sort of like the blanket cranes.Will have to show you I guess hard to describe...Can't wait till summer so I can find more prims normally about 500 vendors in the late spring and summer...Warm Blessings!~Amy

Great cabinet re do!! I'm also trying to simplify, but it doesn't seem to be working cuz I keep hauling stuff home. Oh well~I have an addiction.

Enjoy your day~Becky

Wow, you have such great items. I don't think you should declutter too much, your home looks perfect and cozy.

It's amazing how you can turn that old red cupboard into the perfect backdrop for all your goodies! I love that horse . . . such a special piece!

Great re-do. I love the little pitchfork I see peekin out behind the lovely bonnet.

Amy, it is an awesome piece; well-done!
Glad the flea market went well.
I am purging, too, but it is hard to let go of things that you've had a long time or that were so hard to find! I just keep moving things to another building. Once they are in the garage, they are 1 step from gone! Or re-done! LOL
Yours is a beautiful display!

I am glad you got your paint color fixed. Your cabinet redo turned out great. I love the dolls. I know I have decided to thin out a few of my things, you do get attached to things. Well you have to make room for more. Always on the hunt. Thanks for sharing your cabinet redo. Vicky
