A new corner cabinet

Slowly inspiration is coming to me, but every so slowly.......  Eucalypta needed a cabinet for storage, but I couldn't make up my mind.  Finally I settled for a corner cabinet.  Not too big, because it's only a small cottage and big funiture doesn't look good. I didn't feel like working with wood, so I dug out some cardboard from a box under the bench and set to work.  Here is the result:

I didn't really want some old looking cabinet.  Eucalypta is entitled to some good stuff too, don't you think?  It's amazing what you can do with card and a few embellishments.  I painted it a very dark red, because I don't like too many different colours in any particular setting.  I think it's more pleasing for the eye this way.

Now I need to fill this cabinet.  I wish I had some glass bottles that I could fill.  I'll have a good look and in the meantime will try and think of a few other things.  I'll show you when I've got something to fill this and who knows, I might also get inspiration to make some more furniture.

I might as well welcome two more followers: Francesca (Chipironini) at Petitissim who makes beautiful baby dolls and Clara who doesn't seem to have a blog.  Welcome to both of you and I hope you'll enjoy following my blog.

See ya,


  1. It looks great, I love the colour :)

  2. Nice cabinet - well done! I like the decorative panels, and the dark red - excellent witch colour!!
    I also love the idea of a corner cabinet, it just seems to fit comfortably into a room :))

  3. Me encanta es precioso!!!

  4. Muchas gracias por la bienvenida. Este mueble rinconero va quedar muy bien lleno de botellas cómo dices. ¡Adelante! y enseñalo lleno que estará más bonito. Besos Clara.

  5. El mueble de por si es bonito, pero lleno se vera mejor aun.

  6. Marion, er staat een antwoord op mijn log, onder het olie- en azijn stelletje!

    Groetjes Jody.
