As part of our #realhomesmovement, some of our lovely community have been bringing out their gorgeous home pics! Recently I shared a beautiful home tour from Pretty Rustic and this gorgeous vintage kitchen cabinet.
I then shared a tour of Gina’s home, which also includes a stunning vintage kitchen cabinet.
It triggered off a whole lot of sharing! People were so excited to tell their stories surrounding their vintage cupboards and lots of memories were shared. There is something so lovely about a piece of furniture or an item that has been handed down, or that you have found and worked on yourself – all of the stories that live underneath the timber, or in each coat of carefully layered paint, make these things far more than decorative in our lives. In today’s fast busy digital world, the beauty of touching something made many years ago, something that has lived through many lives, brings us great joy.
Here is a look at some of what you shared.
“I love the white paint look. I own two kitchenettes. I love them so much. Should I paint this one white? “- Caterina. I think the thing is about your home is do what works for YOU. If you love natural go natural, if you love painted, go painted. Your home should reflect you and not be about pleasing anyone else. #realhomesmovement
Kathrin says this one is on the larger size and in amazing condition, just a bit of mesh in a corner above the right hand cupboard which has the slatted shelves, and one slightly bowed door. So heavy!! “I’ve got another more curvy one under a tarp outside… I painted that one in metallic aluminium coloured paint (actual oil based radiator paint!!) so that is another way to upgrade colour wise” she says.
What a lot of wonderful vintage kitchen cabinets!! We LOVE peeking into your homes and as part of our #realhomesmovement we would love to share your story. It may be as simple as one piece you love to an entire tour. Please get in touch
