Preserves Cabinet

So this year I promised myself that I’d get back in touch with my inner design and start doing some crafty projects around the home. My new job working for Design Within Reach has definitely relit the fire under my ass, and I’m ready to get a move on.

Its funny, Alex and I moved into our apartment and had so much work ahead of us that when it was all done we just sort of stopped. Don’t get me wrong, I love our place, but I get bored with a stagnant design.

A few months ago I acquired this fabulous little piece of furniture from the old lady that used to live next door. I thought it would be perfect to use as my canning larder. I knew it needed some spiffing up, but I was just too lazy and never got around to doing anything with it. But now, I’m ready to take it on.

Paint is the obvious solution, and I’ve got a color scheme in mind, but I wanted to reach out to you, my lovely Handjob readers, and get some input.

What do you want to see happen with this piece? Color suggestions? Patterns? Wall paper?

Tell it…
