I found this cabinet with the mirror at Bibles for Missions last summer.
It was painted aqua but aqua didn't really fit in my decor even though I love it, so I spray painted it with ivory then rubbed it off in spots so the aqua would show through.
Hubby finally hung it up a couple weeks ago in the downstairs powder room.
This cabinet, which is reflected in the one in the photo above it, was at my mother-in-law's and has the original paint. It is home made.
The orange tin is Solidified Brilliantine, a hair grooming product for men I think. The orange tube has old hairpins in it. The green glass is an eye rinse cup. To the right of it is a roll of Curity brand tape and a tin of aspirin with the aspirin still in it. I can't get it open to toss them out.
I made the cross stitch on the top of the cabinet.
The brown covered bowl is an old shaving soap bowl. I remember my Dad using one with his shaving brush when I was a little girl. This bowl was natural coloured wood but I painted it.
This tea towel is from a friend. The colours are perfect for this bathroom.
While we're in this room I'll show you the old wash table that was my mothers.
I love this piece. It was always in our dining room at home.
It has the original reddish paint and the trim colour.
It's kind of wobbly and could use some glueing and screws.
The blue and white commode set I bought at a yard sale over 30 years ago. The white ironstone wheat pattern chamber pot I bought at another yard sale a few years ago.
Isn't this a beautiful set?
The mug and the covered soap dish were with the pitcher and bowl but don't match perfectly.
I love these old vintage things that had a great purpose a long time ago when most homes had only outhouses.
Ahhh.....the good old days.
Could you live like that today?
I think we're quite spoiled aren't we? :)
