Little White Cabinet...

I stumbled upon this little white cabinet at the Salvation Army last month.

Only she wasn't white, she was painted with a 1980's checkerboard design and chickens.

But for $4.99, I knew I could "cuten" her up.

And, because I had just turned 55, I received my first ever senior citizen's discount.

(To be honest, I didn't know whether to be teary or cheery about it!)

Anyway, all that to say this, she was cheap!

When I got her home, I covered her with a quick coat of primer and white paint, did a bit of sanding and distressing, then dabbed on and wiped off some dark wax, and then gave her a good coat of clear wax.

She's sitting on top of the antique library table in the living room, and is filled with a few apple themed items since it is back to school time.

She has a little wooden piece that turns to keep her door shut.

I think she's going to be a versatile little addition to my home decor.
