Antique Radio Cabinet







I am so happy with the way my radio cabinet turned out! I wasn't sure about painting it, but now I am glad I did. It feels good to get a project finished. Now on to another one!

The radio cabinet turned out very pretty. Love the toile. I'd put some red glass knobs on it (where the holes are). You found the perfect spot for it!

It looks lovely.

I am starting a NEW Mr. Linky party. It will begin on Aug 10th so everyone will have a week and a half to think about their first post. I have a poll up for votes on which button should be the new button. The "party" is called The Knock Off Knock Out-where THRIFTY meets creative sensation. Go over and learn more about the new weekly event and I would appreciate if you would cast your vote and HELP pick the new button design and its the last week for the July GIVE-A-Way, if you would like to be a part of that event..

Hi! I love your blog! I could look at it all day...okay...I have been looking through your blog all day! But FINALLY I find someone with taste like mine and I can start decorating my new house. I've been depressed thinking I lost my touch some where between shabby chic, French country, and elegance and you have put all three together and you did it in my favorite color RED!!!! So if you don't mind I'm going to borrow some of your ideas...I love French country...but not the blue and white...I wanted to do red...so thank you for all the cute ideas and fun projects... now I'll have plenty to do while my husband is in Afganistan!

Katie said...

I found one of these for $30 and passed it up. IT is beautiful, should I go back for it?? Pretty neat.. IT is a nice wood with some nice scroll and flur de lis?? Your tempting me.

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

Oh, it's so amazing! I love how it turned out~ you worked magic on it! It just *pops* against your yellow walls, too, and looks like it was made for the spot it's in! :)

Pam @ This Humble House said...

I love how the cabinet turned out. I love the red patterns against the yellow walls too! You have terrific taste!

Gail said...
