Old Armoire to Kitchen Pantry: This old Armoire was tired and rendered useless, but with milk paint, some screening and new rustic hardware it became a beautiful kitchen pantry. The purpose is updated and the look is left as old world, rustic and charming. Reminds me of the old Pie Safes. Full instructions at Recaptured Charm. How To @ www.recapturedcha...
Reclaimed wood laundry cabinet I built for a friend. The wood comes from his family's old farm home built by his grandfather that was demolished recently as well as barnwood from the farm. The bottom is yellow pine flooring, cabinet back is siding, cabinet framing is from barn rafters and posts, the beadboard paneling is from the walls inside the old house. Their is no finish on the wood just the natural aged patina. I used a stainless wire brush to clean the dirt and dust off.
