Cupboard love

 

I have to admit that I do have a weakness for antique cupboards. This type of furniture can be placed in several rooms of the house and can be used for different purposes. They can be functional or they can be used as a decorative piece of furniture.

In a dining room they can be used as display cabinets, in a kitchen they can be used as storage. You even can use them as curiosity cabinets in your study room.

  2. Ces armoires étaient-elles faites pour rester ouvertes ? Ou bien est-ce la mode en ce moment ? Les étagères sont joliment découpées en tout cas ! Merci Greet, c'est beau ! J'aime beaucoup et surtout la couleur à l'intérieur !!!
    Bon week-end !
