Some things you just don't change...

A couple of months ago, I was able to score some amazing Farmhouse
finds that I posted lots of pictures of here.

Do you remember seeing this cute little cupboard?

I ho-hummed around some different ideas of what to do
with it, but nothing seemed quite right.

It was then that I realized
that I loved it just the way it was. . .this thing caught my eye
the second I looked in the barn. . .white, chippy, and beautiful :)

So I kept it just the way it was. . .

I actually did make a few changes. . .I sanded and sprayed a clear coat
to prevent any possible lead poisoning since it's a very old piece. . .

The other thing is I traded out the hardware with these from
Hobby Lobby, and painted them antique white with
some minor distressing. . .

I have a special place in my heart for the "old farmer" I got this from. . .
he is a dear friend whom I love and respect :)

days parched and empty-
thirsting after happiness...
when we're really standing
knee deep in the river
of abundance?"
