Primitive Stepback Cupboard - I did it!


A trip down memory lane
this is what I started with

the hutch is built

the indecisive stage

all done and decorated
(notice the decorative piece below the top...I copied the design from the bottom cabinet to tie it all together)
I still need to get hardware for the draw pulls...but I haven't figured out what I want just yet.
In the end, I decided to remove the paint from the top..... even though I did like it, I figured I would get tired of it and then I'd have another project
(which I don't need :)

the top
check out the cool apple gourd I got last weekend
(need advice on drying it please)

shelf #1 .......haha, this sign cracks me up
the BuTT in Butt'ry kind of jumps right out at you
Shelf #2

love the hue of the "countertop" ...dark walnut stain

The bottom cabinet cost me $30.00 at a yard sale this summer.  All the other materials were
stock we had on hand and some recycled wood. 

Now I have myself a Primitive Stepback Cupboard..
that I love...
Well, now that that's re-done, made-over, in the history books...
it's onto the next prim make-over

What'll it be next?

Hugs & Happiness,
