This great cabinet is just in at the shop and I think it's a total gem. I can imagine it a million different ways but I thought I'd share my top 10 favourites.
2. The Bathroom. It's a bit more unexpected, which is why I like this idea so much. A freestanding antique piece has so much more character than today's fitted options. And the best part is that it keeps everything you need easily accessible right in the room -- no more mad dash to the hallway linen closet.
4. A child's room. Kids come with a lot of stuff. But they only need one bedside table. Swap out the other for a tall cabinet to make the most of storage and display of all this things kids like to collect. Toronto designer and stylist Christine Hanlon did just that in her daughter's room, shown here.
8., 9. and 10. Our cabinet is in great condition but a touch of paint could transform it in a few different ways.
Bird's Egg: is a pale aqua that would lend a coastal pretty look. This would be a nice choice for painting the interior of the cabinet.
Chelsea Grey: Painting the inside or even the whole cabinet in this hue in a flat finish would give the cabinet a modern and more serious vibe.
Hale Navy: This classic deep blue has a preppy decorator feel -- think Windsor Smith. If you painted the cabinet interior this colour and then displayed silver serving pieces on the glass shelves it would look fantastic.
