Free furniture

After all the excitment of chasing foxes and rescuing our lovely Latte,it was time to rescue something else, a not very lovely but extremely useful piece of furniture. So while the weather decided what it wanted to do I settled down to a spot of painting.
I had other jobs I could have been doing but there's something calming about transforming an old unwanted piece of furniture into a pretty and useful item and the fact we got it for free made it seem doubly satisfying.
The colour is a mix of cream, white and a little bit of the door colour we had mixed for the farmhouse exterior doors, I love it, but I'll never be able to replicate it exactly so it was nice to have enough to finish the cupboard and a little bit left over for a side table and a plant stand.

I'm off shopping today so I'm going to look for a roll of flowery wallpaper to line the drawers and the cupboard doors. I'll take another picture when I've finished.

(Update on Latte - she is alive and well and looking in fine fettle, although she gave me a heart stopping moment a few minutes ago when she vanished - I was searching everywhere outside and she was in the kitchen eating dog food!!)

Hope you had nice weekend.
