my obsession with tiny furniture.

My obsession with tiny furniture continues!

Who remembers this little number that I picked up at a garage sale in early summer?

It had an authentically aged original paint job, but I just couldn’t handle the red.  So I painted over the red with some Annie Sloan Duck Egg.  Then, the fresh coat of Duck Egg made the original cream exterior look seriously dingy and yellowed.  So I went over that with some Miss Mustard Seed milk paint in Linen.

I fully expected a bunch of chipping since I was painting over paint, but I didn’t get a single chip.  When I say that whether or not milk paint will chip can be unpredictable, I mean it.

Once it was painted, I also added a tiny little ’37’ rub-on to the top.

I know it can be hard to judge scale in these photos, but this little cupboard is just 18″ tall.  It’s the perfect size for placing on a dresser or table top and filling it up with some of your crafting supplies.

It’s kinda adorable, right?

I was contemplating keeping it and letting it join its brethren in the Q Branch (my study).

But I really don’t think I need another tiny piece of furniture!

So it will probably end up at my sale in October.  I think.  Maybe.  Yes. Probably.

  1. Done- glad you made a decision no vacillating here! Lol! You do know things are more interesting in odd numbers so I vote for the entire congregation to stay together. Can I get an amen?
    In all seriousness nice refresh on this tiny piece.

    1. I am an odd number girl, but that little pink one is not on display. It is inside my rooster cupboard. So I only have 3 on display, and this one would make number 4 … an even number … I think it may stay on the chopping block.

    1. The pink one is super tiny, maybe only about 6″ tall, compared to this one at 18″ tall. I did debate getting rid of the blue one in the bottom right photo though … that’s still a possibility.

      1. Got it many of these items are redone with your sale in mind. You do have a business to run. I love that you have attractive storage mine tends just to be functional. I may have to rethink that for myself.

  2. I love them all. And there is something about these small pieces that everyone loves. I have the same problem with jewlery boxes! I hate to say it, but you should sell. The more you sell, the more you can buy. This is my mantra (or has to be) because I am out of space!

  3. Love it! I love little bowls and small versions of everything! Never thought of looking out for a small piece of furniture for them. Thanks for the inspiration!
