This antique corner cupboard has been in our home for about 15 years. I found it in a small antique store in Edmonds, Washington. I had looked for several years for a small corner cupboard and when I saw this cupboard in this shop I knew we had to find a way to purchase it. My husband set up a payment plan with the shop owner and a few months later we brought it home. I wanted to do something to make the items inside show up a little better without making major changes to the cabinet.
The plastic lace has been on the front of the shelves for several years
The back of the cabinet is dark and scratched as if it had paper on it in the past
I really do like the cabinet but the inside back and the lace we had on it for the past
15 years didn't seem to set off the items inside.
I bought two kinds of scrapbook paper to use like wallpaper for the back of the cabinet. I placed the two types of paper in the cabinet to see which worked better.
I really liked the paper onthe left but it may be too busy
After looking and looking I decided on the white on the top shelf
I measured and cut the paper and used a spray glue to attatch the paper to the back of the cabinet. It will be easy to remove in the future if I want to change it, but I do like the way the items inside are easier to see.
My friend Dana gave me this tea set to use for tea parties with my grandchildren
I think things show up better even from a distance and with the doors closed.
