A Shabby Chic Cupboard from Jen

Hello Bloggers

Jen explains her 'cupboard':

'Hi everyone, as soon as I saw this little vintage children's cupboard I knew The Dreaming in Roses paper from Meg's Garden would be perfect to refurbish it. I started by sanding it down to get a smooth surface. I cut and glued all the papers to the cupboard and then attached some lace and a doily from my own collection.. I used Meg's gorgeous pearl trim to accentuate the shelves and top. I also used the gorgeous velvet flowers on the shelves and side. I gave the mini tray a goat of Gesso to make it white, then added some pink distress ink to add some colour. I used one of my dies and framed my vintage photo with more of the Dreaming in Roses paper. I just love this collection. I hope you like my shabby chic vintage cupboard. Until next time, Jen xxx'

 What a serious project you undertook but Jen it was so well done. I know that no-one will be allowed to touch it. It is so beautiful & the Dreaming in Roses was the perfect choice of paper with its delicateness.

Bye for now
