Before we go . . . a before and after!

Hello everyone. It's been very busy here as we get ready to go to New York tomorrow for the Stationery Show and for Surtex. I'm looking forward to seeing all my friends, clients, colleagues and partners. It's always a great opportunity to visit and socialize and do a little business at the same time! We are also going to go to Doug's Broadway show - Nice Work If You Can Get It starring Matthew Broderick. Doug did all the illustration and typography for the poster, and all the peripheral graphics. It's been fun to watch the ongoing press that the show has received and we're looking forward to seeing it this weekend. So if you're going to the shows stop by and say hi at booth #309 at Surtex or shoot me an email and I'll make time to have a visit with you.

In the mean time I wanted to show you a before and after we did last weekend on this cobwebby old cupboard that had been in our barn for about 5 years. It actually was 2 cupboards - one on the front and one on the back - so we had to cut it in half, disassemble it and then rebuild it. I added some vintage crown moulding (that Doug found in a dumpster outside a reno!) And some sweet little iron knobs. I painted the inside a pale blue grey, put a quick coat of varathane on the outside, and then put it in my studio and filled it with treasures. Hope you like it ;-)

Fantastic! I always lack the vision to see how an old cupboard like that one would look good in my home. I see how it could work, but guessed it would look that good. Any tips?
