WORKSHOP UPDATE

Just a short post about what has been going on in Bob's workshop this past week.  He has the patience of a saint at auctions on a hot August Saturday.  He stuck it out all afternoon to get this old cupboard cheap.  I, on the other hand, retreated to my air-conditioned house!  In my absence, he did bid on and win an ironstone tureen for me -- I will show it to you on some future post.

 The cupboard needed some structural work and the original door was a mess, but he had something in mind for that poor door.
 He loves working with twigs, so he refashioned this beat-up cupboard into a cupboard with a rustic/cabin vibe!
 He fixed the crooked shelves and painted them a barn red.
It's off to the consignment shop for resale.

I'm joining the following parties this week.  Please check them out for a plethora of inspiration.

Darling little cabinet; loving the bit of red and the twigs are the perfect remake for the doors. Awesome idea!

Excellent work, as always! I went to an auction-ONCE! Not my idea of fun, so didn't get whatever it was that I thought I wanted! Farm auctions have so much junk.♥♫
