30 Minute Make-Over: Kitchen Cupboard

I had inherited this beautiful pine kitchen dresser from my parents a few years ago – it was their first kitchen cupboard from the late 60’s.

I have always loved it and dreamed of one day having it in my own kitchen since I was a little girl, but I though it was time to spruce it up a bit.

And here it is! Isn’t it dreamy?!

I bought 2 beautiful bird shapes from a craft shop and reverse-stenciled them onto the ply lower doors by sticking them to the door with Prestic and painting over it (I used Cotton Candy Paint in Bubblegum – a single coat does the trick!).

These little porcelain beauties are from Poetry – they have such a wonderful selection that you’re sure to find one you love.

I used a lovely polka dot gift wrap for the backing in the top part of the cabinet and fixed it with double-sided tape. I love how you can still see the tongue & groove paneling through it!

Some vintage accessories and my favourite tea-set complete the look.

It’s amazing what can be done in 30 minutes, don’t you think?!

  1. Sweet memories, if only that cupboard could talk, I am sure many stories would be told what happened in all the kitchens, many moons ago!!. It’s wonderful to see all they old cupboards/furniture being revived and being modernized and used in the homes today!
