Well............if you look very close, there is a vintage green locker in the pic. A three over three with the most fantastic green chippy paint. It's approx. 36" wide and 30" deep. Perfect for the space I am thinking about in the cottage. But I have to tell you.....I am stepping out of my comfort zone here with this. I do like it so...........I bought it!!!
Hubby loves the color and the idea. He is going to put a wood top on it and industrial rollers on the bottom to raise it up.
I also bought a CHANDY to go above it....(sorry, no pic). It will be a while before we get to this point in the decorating area but my mind is going non-stop!
I'm going for a Romantic-Rustic look in the cottage.......I may love it or it could evolve into something else.
I thought you would enjoy some pics of "things" people have created/used for an island that are VERY UNIQUE and different~~~~~Enjoy!
Some very different, unique or extreme examples here. I am really thinking outside the box with this but I am willing to try it..............Have a wonderful and blessed week~~~~~Roxie

I came in the cottage, cleared off the mantle and set the antique frame down. Then I turned the sconces on and stepped back and visualized~~~~yes, call me crazy.....but I needed to "decorate".
Ken says what are you doing? My response.....I need to be "inspired" before I start working! He just looks at me with a half grin......
Today is a cold, rainy, miserable day. Ken left the house to go to the cottage at 8 am. Not me........I came a few hours later. Here is what I saw when I walked in the door........
Just in case you can't see what it is............................(sorry for the dark pics, overcast today)
Blessings and a wonderful week~~~Roxie

About a month ago, I came across an old door at an Antique Mall and LOVED it! It was the natural wood with a great patina, all hardware including hinges, and glass in the door about this size with a stencil/painted bird motif (perfect for a cabin w/nature) but still some femininity. I passed on it..........thought more about it and went back to get it and guess what? Yep, it was gone! REGRET.
So .............yesterday I came across this door at a local Antique Mall. I love it! The color is not of my choice (though it is old paint) and I haven't decided to paint it or sand it down. I'd prefer to use some natural wood tones with white walls and lean to sanding to a wood patina.
I have a choice where to use this door......into the larger bathroom or on a walk-in closet hubby is building. The french wordage would be perfect for a closet door but the door wouldn't be seen as much. I plan on putting white lace behind the glass for privacy. That really makes the door/french words pop!
I'm in Business! We are in the thick of things with plumbing, drywall and some electrical work. Those phases are "I can't see much being done" and "oh, this is where the money is going!
Have a wonderful and Blessed week~~~Roxie
