Open wide and say ahhhh!

About 20 years ago Mom found an old dentist’s cabinet and it was just calling her name!  She had a vision of what she would make it look like…

With all the snow….(Mom and Dad live in the ‘snow belt’…northeastern PA) they have been getting a lot of projects done.

The cabinet and the doors are wood.  You can see how dark the doors and trim were before the sanding and painting.  After the primer the whole thing was sprayed with Heirloom White.DSCN2728


The glass knobs are the original ones.  The cabinet is accessorized with white pitchers Mom has collected over the years and some of her prized milk bottles.  Reminders of a simpler time, when you went to the front door to find your milk and eggs!  She used salt in the milk bottles to give the effect of milk within them.DSCN2741

The finished cabinet hangs in the entry to her beautiful country  kitchen.  A bright spot on a winter’s day!DSCN2735
