The Prettiest Salvaged Interior Architecture Ever


There is a chippy blue-green salvaged ‘counter’ in the charming Lucky Dog store on Main Street in Hamden, NY that took my breath away.    It is not for sale.    They think it came from an apothecary or other retail establishment because of the long honed marble top and ample storage below.













There are classical motifs all over: swags, bows, egg-and-dart trim.


Imagine this as the focal point of a shabby kitchen.


Lots of useful shelving that could be softened with lace (that’s an upcoming project from my own plain china cabinet).


It would be a very long project, but it could be replicated. If anyone out there ever does it, please share it with me!



Until next time, stay shabby!

What a truly lovely piece. I can just see it in someone's kitchen. Don't you just hate it when you see something wonderful and you're searching for the price tag and you find the dreaded 'NFS' marked on the item.

Smiles,

Carol

Hi again Sandy. I have your button on my blog now...yayyy!!! I did what you suggested and I also emailed the code I used to your gmail. Only thing was I couldn't fit your entire blog name as my title so I just named it ShabbyStudio.

Lola just said "i love this" about your buffet in this post. When a 10 year old says that, you know for sure it's good :P
