About 2 months ago I received an email from Angelica, who had just moved into a fabulous new home not too far from us. She was on the hunt for something to fill a wall in her kitchen and eventually found a really beautiful vintage cabinet which she graciously sent over for me to work on. By far, this was one of the sweetest pieces I have ever played with. The detailing on it felt very sea-inspired and it even featured shell-like moulding on the bottom cabinet drawers. I was soooo excited to hear from her again recently and discover that she also has a blog as well, Frugal Contessa.
She actually chose all the hardware later on, once she got it home and I was SOOOO thrilled to see a minty-green glass knob on the cabinet to play up the beachy-theme.
Hopefully in the next few weeks we will meet up again and grab a coffee~

Ooh, that is pretty. At first the cross-hatching on the glass made me think it was the one you showed us only a few posts down...dfferent, but quite similar! I love the swaying, wavy curves on top. I almost wish there were more closeups of the detailing to see! Lovely job, to the both of you :)

This makes all of your "far far away" readers even more envious that we can't have you work on something lovely we love. :) Beautiful as always.

Oh I know how lucky I am to be near the fabulous Holly ;) Too bad the pictures are so dark, I definitely need a better camera and a I need to switch out the awful builder-grade hanging lamp for that matter! But the lovely cabinet makes up for all those little details. Thanks again for sharing this with your readers Holly.
