From the Farmhouse Kitchen (Summer Farmhouse Kitchen Reveal). . . .let's move into the Farmhouse Living Room. . . .that last room to complete. . . .the one that seems to always be at the bottom of the 'to do' list. . . .I need to see a little progress there. . . .A cupboard would be nice, I thought. . . .to hold extra feed sacks and linens. . . .to hide DVDs and CDs. . . .to store favorite magazines. . . .
Out I went to storage. . . .not knowing what I'd find. . . .Then my eyes spotted a cupboard. . . .a cupboard John built a few years ago. . . .the last of many he crafted and sold. . . .utilizing a screen door someone threw away, chicken wire he found in the barn, wood from donated pallets, scrap wood from the shop, yard sale hardware. . . .PERFECT!!
The only problem. . . .It was painted green. . . .easily changed. . . .Grab that paint brush!
Once painted, it looked a little plain. . . .
I added newspaper (wallpaper) to the shelves.
Still needed something. . . .
Boo happened in. . . .to check out my progress. . . .I was inspired. . . .
A black cat?. . . .Yes!. . . .Imagine that!
I did more than imagine it. . . .By chance, I'd just bought a shelf cat at a yard sale last week. . . .Must have known I'd need it soon?. . .Thanks, Boo. . . .
Half a vintage thread spool became the knob. . . .
And, there you have it. . . .
One corner done.
. . .from my farmhouse to yours. . .

Oh, I like that cupboard!! I can just see quilts stacked in there.
Seriously...when can I borrow John!?! Between the two of you...you have great taste. It's just the right touch of farmhouse decor!
Now that is stinkin' adorable! I mean that in a GOOD way :)
It really did need that black cat, how about that!
I just love the look of chicken wire. And it fits so perfectly here. You had me cracking up with your kitty looking at the faux kitty. What a classic shot!
Simply gorgeous! Love everything about this. Great job xox
Very, very pretty! I love it. I think your cat wants that shelf cat!
Love, love, love it!! It turned out great. Looks like your kitty likes it too!
Absolutely love it!!!!
I love screen doors!
This one, on your cupboard... reminds me of the one on my front door!
I like it! You can't go wrong with chicken wire either.
Can't wait to see the rest of it.
I love your sweet cupboard! The chicken wire looks great and I just love the little vintage thread spool for the handle!
My first visit here, your cupboard turned out just so pretty. I'm inspired....

Love it Dru! So happy that Boo came along to inspire you. Looks lovely with it's new white coat. Drooling over your old feed sacks!

how long did it take???
hopin' my sweet fella might make me one. =)
Oh I love this! I found something similar at a thrift shop.I was trying to sell it...it did not sell...lucky me I am keeping it and will be repainting it soon :-) Thank you for the inspiration!Your kitty is sweet :-)
I am in love with that cupboard.
I am reading backward and just commented on your dry sink. Now I am thinking it would be fun to try to build something like your cupboard. I am friends with the shop teacher from my former school so he could cut the pieces for me. That would certainly be a fun challenge.
This cupboard is gorgeous! Love the chicken wire door, and the way you've decorated it all, just fabulous. Thanks for sharing, I saw your link at Cozy Little House.
