Jelly cupboard makeover

Hello!  Whew….this blog has gathered cobwebs rather quickly!  Even though the ole’ blog has taken a summer break it doesn’t mean that we have!  I have lots to catch you up on.

First!  I must share how proud I am of Mrs. Alabama Spice!  She is currently out of the country on a mission trip.   She’s never left her family for this length of time.  She’s never been this far from home.  She’s never flown on a plane and she’s never been out of the country.  WOW!  How’s that for being out of your comfort zone!  She felt a calling and didn’t give into the fear of the unknown! Now that’s displaying full faith and obedience!  I pray for safety, opening of hearts to God’s love and forgiveness and that lives will be touched and changed forever.  May the message of our Savior continue to reach near and far.

Mark 16:15New International Version (NIV)

15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

So, here’s my latest makeover.  This jelly cupboard started out in my sister’s home.  It then moved on to my Mom’s, where it remained for many, many years.  I’m happy to say that it’s finally made its way into my home!


The doors and drawers have been removed.










I sanded it down really well and brighten it up with a fresh coat of Sherwin Williams “Glimmer”.


Then it sat like this for weeks.

I wanted to change out the old knobs but honestly, haven’t taken the time to shop for anything yet.  But, as fate would have it, I found the PERFECT vintage/sparkle at an estate sale with my sister.  And I wasn’t even looking for them.  I almost put them back because I didn’t know where to use them.  Ha!!  I’m so glad I didn’t.  {Hint!  Always buy beauties like these!}


I used a drill bit to make the screw hole a little larger. Other than that, they look like they were made for this piece.

I needed 6 knobs total and guess how many we found at the estate sale….SIX!  Fate I tell you!


I love how it fills in this unused corner of our kitchen.


I am still trying to get my decorating just right  but for now I love looking at this pretty thing.
Thanks Sis & Mom for the hand me down!  What else you got for me? 😉

  1. Such a pretty little piece, and you made it look prettier than it was! You are right about the knobs, they do look perfect on there! I have just refinished my first piece of furniture, an old armoire, I look forward to sharing it on the blog. Thank you so much for sharing at Celebrate Your Story!
