White Wallpaper & Changes to our Old Pine Cupboard

Our old pine cupboard has had quite a few changes since it was purchased back in 1969. It started out in a dark stain and stayed that way until I painted the doors, drawer and edge trim in hunter green back in the 80's!
Then around 2010 I got brave and painted it black with a burgandy interior and a few gold accents.

Today, I pulled out some wallpaper that I had leftover from another furniture project 

and added it to the backs of the three shelves. It's paintable if I should tire of it...you can see how I did exactly that here

I love the subtle touch of class that the white damask adds to my collection of white ironstone and vintage Staffordshire plates.

I'll be using the plates for our Valentine's celebration for two.

Since it's almost Valentine's Day I added a few little touches of love here with me and my girls

and here, of me and my honey.

My penguin, that was in our Christmas window, is up on the top shelf and wearing a red heart, too!

Now, I'm off to finish the post on our mantel...I think you're gonna like it. 
It really is romantic!

  Love, Hugs and Kisses,
JP
and Gucci, too!
