My Corner Cabinet Redo

I finally got my corner cabinet and table painted. It was barn red and I decided I would like it black. I have been painting a lot of things black lately.

I like the way it looks against the log walls and especially against the Hancock Grey (Benjamin Moore) walls. I opened the doors to show you my sheep collection.This is a sheep mold that I got at the World Wide Mission Shop for $2.00. Here are a couple of my restaurant creamers. At Christmas I put bottle brush trees in them and put them on my window sill.The next shelf I have some sheep that we make at the shop where I work, The Heart of Newburgh. We used to wholesale these to shops, but we gave that up several years ago. They are made from plaster and paper mache and we used vintage chocolate molds. I painted these myself.

On the bottom shelf, I have some reproduction german sheep. I still need to add a black sheep to my family. I need to either move the cordless phone/answering machine or come up with something creative to hide it. I need to add a few more accessories on the top. Any ideas? I would love to hear them.

  3. Oh I love you sheep collection! :)
    Your re-do looks wonderful too.

    Enjoy your day and your weekend.

  4. Oh, it looks so good! You did a grea job, Michelle. And look at your sheep! You have got some cute ones. I don't know if you know this or not, but I collect sheep, too. I try to find ones from old creches (ones that have gone astray), but I have several of those like you have with the matchstick legs. I love sheep because they are good for both Christmas and Easter decor. You have a great collection, and the cabinet sets them off to perfection.
