Toy Cabinet Makeover


For the last year I have been on the lookout for a child sized wooden cabinet. I have a collection of vintage tin doll dishes (most of them being cute little tin cups) and I wanted to add hooks and hang them in a cute little cabinet. My search had not been going well because most cute vintage ones I was finding were pricey little things, and I am just too cheap. I knew if I held out for something that it would eventually come along. I was super excited when I spotted this one a few weeks ago for $8.00. It was covered in stickers and pretty dirty, but it cleaned up well!
These photos are actually more of a “in progress” then finished, but you get the idea. I still plan to add some cute decals to the front of the doors, and I need to screw in all my hooks to hang the cups. Meanwhile though it sure does look a lot cuter then it did!

    Hi Heidi,

    A friend of mine gave me some decals that I just adore but I know I would never use them. I would keep them more on hand for reference but I would love to gift them to you if you thought it would be the perfect fit for your cabinet. They’re swan decals! I thought they would be lovely with the color of your cabinet and because I remembered that you have those swan themed tins. I can always take a picture of them and tag you on instagram if you’re interested?

    Erica, that is so very sweet of you! Please do tag me! If I don’t see it right away it might get pushed down (I really wish “likes” didn’t push away comments on IG) so if I don’t reply please just feel free to tag me again!
