my creative space 'can you see the potential too??'

Greetings all,
A quick, cheap, fun My Creative Space for Posie this week. 
Can you see the amazing potential for this $50 cabinet??  Thank goodness for large cars as this was simply tossed in my boot/  over the 3rd row, on my way home from my 4 children's Learning Journey (class open days) today.
The lamp shades were free, hmmm, for another My Creative Space in the future.
So it's missing shelves & glass, however, i see it as a gorgeous display unit on my market stall with the doors flung open, filled with the ultimate fabric stash bundles or Christmas decorations, either way, i think it needs to be lined with red - perhaps these oil cloth materials from Beach Vintage??
Now i bid you farewell & i've packed jackets for the children so they don't blow away at Floriade (flower festival) after school this afternoon. Should be glorious!! 
Thanks for the lovely feedback on the last post, it was fun thinking up those things.  Love Posie

we also had the giant landcruiser which was so great on 'trawling day', much to my husbands bereftness....

I can see something wall mounted and painted in that shelf...?

Well done, just read your last post and laughed a lot 'before CSI was cool' and am now imagining what happens in the middle of the night with metal hand splints, i have edward scissorhands in my mind...

This is a great cabinet. It will look beautiful with a makeover using that spotty oil cloth.xo

Mira Narnie said...

That is great! I can really imagine it full of fabric!!!

Christina said...

So much potential! And when you are finished with it at the markets, you could paint it white and make fabric curtains on the inside and store all sorts of goodies in it.
