Old Kitchen Cupboard....

There's a monster in the house!

A 9 foot, old, musty smelling green/grey monster.

I don't know how I will tackle it just yet, but I will conquer it and it will fit right in.

Need help reassuring that to my husband....

Not sure where to begin.....

Maybe soap and hot water?

Did I mention it's old, BIG, spider webby, and a little musty smelling?

The latest decorating, anyone?


  1. Oh it is wonderful! Can't wait to see what you do with it! It is a great bones cabinet so whatever you do or however you paint I know it will turn out great andit will be fun to decorate it for summer or fall! Love it.

  2. What a great piece. Yep I think you should start with soap and water. I always do this and spray with bug spray (in case theres bugs living in the wood) and leave it outside for a few days. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

  4. Your cupboard is awesome. Sorry to say good luck with the smell. Bought a very old dresser...cleaned and painted it. It still has a funky odor. I have sprayed with fabreeze, placed car air fresheners in the drawers etc. Please share in your blog if you find a cure!!

  5. It is gorgeous though! Can't wait to see what you do with it...

  6. Just Awesome what a gorgeous find.....

  9. WOW!!!! What a great find!!! I LOVE the shape and the hardware that's on it!! I can't wait to see it when you get finished with it. Keep us posted!! :)


  10. You failed to mention that it is GORGEOUS!! Love it!!

  11. i LOVE IT! esp the crackly looking paint. Try wiping it down with some bleach/water on a damp cloth.... maybe that will help the smell...or sometimes Ive had to just sit those stinky pieces out in the SUN for several HOT dry days ... and that seems to dry them out and somehow take alot of the smell away... or a combo of both. Good luck! Im jealous.......... Elisha at Grown By Grace blogspot
