Showcase project.......

We needed a little showcase for smalls at the shows and shop, so using this vintage cupboard door and some wood, I was able to make one.

I think I will make the next one a little steeper to hold taller things, but this will work for jewelry, and smaller stuff.....it's about 6" high in the back.

I really wanted to leave the door pretty much as is (it has the original wavy glass), so I just cleaned it up and tried to paint the box a neutral brown. I lined the inside with some vintage wallpaper.

I have tons of old hardware, but of course I couldn't find any cool butterfly hinges (for decoration only--I have the functional ones on the back), or just the right handle I liked, so this will have to do until I find those.




BTW......here is the booth banner with the vintage letters on it (we decided on these rather than make collage tags).
