Its done and in the room

Yes it did have doors on the bottom but I decided to leave the off and display more of my quilts in the bottom. As you can see I painted it red and then sanded on the edges to make it look old and then put a stain over the top. I left the top and just re stained it!
I also had two handles left over from our kitchen cabinets that I used on the top doors.

The blue quilt is I think the only quilt that my grandmother had made. Its made out of feed sack from the 1930's.


  1. I love what you did with your cabinet. Would you mind if I copied it. I have a hutch I just don't know what to do with.

    Thanks for the inspiration. That's twice now, as I am currently copying your rug;-)


  2. I love the color of your cabinet!!!!!!!

  3. It really looks fantastic! I love red (my favorite color) and I'm always drawn to red furniture.

    Beautiful job!


  4. I love the cabinet and the idea to leave off the bottom cabinets was genius. Wow! You inspire and amaze me!

  5. Ohhh red ! I love red - it's my favorite color. You prepared a very nice piece of furniture. Greetings, Angelika

  6. The red is so beautiful. I love how you left the doors off the bottom so you could display your gorgeous quilts.

  7. It looks MARVELOUS! What a super job, doesn't even look like the same cabinet. The quilts look beautiful too.

  8. Julie, it looks great! I'm not surprised you painted it red. :) Good idea about quilt display on the bottom shelves.

  9. Julie.. I love it!!!! The red is so pretty!
