I love primitive cupboards. This was my anniversary and birthday gift all in one. This was in the basement of an old farm house, it was dark, it was dirty and I had no idea the real color. I spit on it and was tickled to see something in the green or Robin's egg blue color. We bought it and other cool pieces that I will sell.
This cupboard is in 2 very large and heavy pieces. As we proceeded up the steps, I actually fell backward, hard on my back and the cabinet top fell on me. I was shaken, but acted like it wasn't that bad. As we drove away with a trailer full of stuff we both looked at each other and almost at the same time said..."it's been fun, but we can't do that, like that, any more." Fast forward a summer and fall full of living estate sales, moving, lifting, twisting, hauling...I couldn't walk with out hunching over. Doctor appointment, several xrays later - I have a slipped disc and pinched nerve. I start a treatment plan next week.
This primitive cupboard was in my trailer from the end of May till mid December. I finally cleaned out an area that it would fit in. I didn't think of that when I bought it, I just wanted it. Al and I brought it in the house and 3 hours of cleaning later I'm in love!
The drawers in the center go way back and are at a peak so that it fits in all the space of the corner. It is wonderfuly made by a true craftsman. I can't help but think on the family that enjoyed this for probably 150 years, maybe more.
I am now going to paint the adjoining room within this same color palette. I will hate to paint over the stenciling I did back in 1995, I still like it, but it's dated.
Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
