Before and After

My husband and I got this cupboard about 8 years ago while on a trip to Plymouth Rock.  I've always wanted to change it but finally got around to it this fall.  I like the way it looks now.  The white goes with our kitchen cupboards so now there is a more cohesive look in the room.  My new favorite things are what is on top of the cupboard.  I got the Christmas card holder and Santa recently at a local flea market.  
I am super happy with the way they look on the old cupboard.  The card holder in particular reminds me of my Nana Betty who loved snowmen and was always doodling them: 
A bonus is that it folds flat!  It is a little hand made treasure and a happy addition to our home!  Have a warm and happy day!

OOoOOoo love the Santa - he's so vintage looking! It's sad, though, that what I remember growing up, is now "vintage" --- but at least - it's not [yet] ANTIQUE!! ;)

I like the look of your updated cabinet and the gingham curtains.
