Re-arranging our Big Red Country Kitchen Cupboard

I've had this primitive, country cupboard since I purchased it in the 80's at an auction. It, originally, had a nice, old door and was just brown stained wood and probably came out of someone's farmhouse. It was used in the kitchen like that for a long time, until the day that I decided to remove the door and use it as part of my "nail station"....I was a tech for many years!  Sadly, somewhere in time the door got left behind and a variety of curtains have taken it's place.

Here it is in our Carolina room aka my craft/office space. It was holding tons of supplies and my printer.

I had the urge to move it into our kitchen this past weekend and use it as a storage cupboard was a "beast" to move! Thank God for my honey and his hand truck!!!

 Country primitive LOVE!

A country arrangement now sits on top.

Gucci's leash and treats hang from a handy hook.

It's taken the place of our black desk

and adds a bold pop of red to all of the black in the room.

The burlap board of Love got moved here.

Now, the cupboard is hiding our t.v and printer and a lot of my other supplies and papers.

It was a full days work re-arranging and organizing my supplies in both of the rooms.
A little bag switch!

The furniture swap is really blending in well in both rooms, now and I'm a happy, happy camper!

   Love, Hugs and Kisses,
and Gucci, too!

A very special "thank you" to Kathy from adelightsomelife for featuring this post on her wonderful blog!

This seems like one of those pieces that would work great wherever you might need it, Janet. I am hoping that the cabinet piece I am getting for our master bathroom will be the same way. If, at some point in the future, we should move again, it will be a nice piece to take and could be used anywhere.

How lovely that you have had that cupboard through so many uses. I bet it is secretly "hiding" a few more for the future...........
