  1. Oh Becky, you lucky girl!!! I have been searching everywhere for a cabinet like this!! I would definitely leave it as is! I love the fact that it has no glass! And the dark wood inside is perfect, it makes the blue paint really pop!
    Beautiful my friend!
    Have a lovely night!!

  2. Amy Kinser says:

    Love love love the color on this cabinet! I have to say that I really love the openness of the doors with no glass. Can't wait to see what all you do with it!

    It is so easy to go over and vote. I already did and will go back. Love to you…

  3. wow what a great find! LUCKY!

  4. I love her Becky and if she were mine I'd have to go with chicken wire inserts.

  5. Lululiz says:

    It is absolutely gorgeous and I would leave it just as it is. You are a very lucky girl to have found such a beauty.

  6. AntiqueChase says:

    that is the prettiest cupboard ever

  7. Marina says:

    E' fantastico!!! Ha delle sfumature bellisime… io gli metterei la rete conigliera…l'interno bianco non è bello…fai una prova con qualche legno bianco e un foglio chiaro nel retro e poi decidi se dipingerlo o no…complimenti un bacio

  8. Lori says:

    If you paint it white inside your white "things" won't show up as nicely. Great find. Can't wait to see where it ends up next, wink, wink. Sorry hubby.

  9. It's me says:

    What a beautiful colored cupboard !!…love from me….xxx..

    The voting link didn't work for me, I'll go try again. Lori

  11. helle says:

    Totally fantastic cupboard, understand you fell for it!


  12. LOVE that cabinet. It looks good like it is, but maybe chicken wire would work good.

  13. Beautiful cabinet!!! And the perfect shade of blue. I don't know that I'd do anything to it, at least for awhile. Maybe later, add the chicken wire, but I'm sure it will be beautiful no matter what you do to it since it has so much character and presence.

  14. That's a great cupboard. I like your idea of old screen. And the color is gorgeous!

  15. Love the blue color of the cabinet, so springy! Jean

  16. Oh my goodness…this is one of the prettiest pieces of furniture I have ever seen!! The color and patina are just perfect! You have styled it so beautifully too. I just love it!!

  17. B says:

    That is a truly gorgeous piece – lucky you!
    Hugs, B x

  18. Your cupboard is just beautiful! I absolutely love the old, chippy blue paint and you've styled it just right. Old screen would be a fun addition, but I think it looks pretty great as it is too. On my way to vote!

  19. Momma Hen says:

    oh it's beautiful! I really like the warm wood tone inside , as apposed to white. Love it!

  20. chateau chic says:

    Your new cabinet is fabulous! I could see painting the inside white, but keep the windows open. You can view your wonderful displays so much better if there is nothing where the glass was, and I love the charm of the open windows.

    Hello Becky! I LOVE your cupboard! What a find! The color is gorgeous! And you have it decorated so cute (as usual 🙂

  22. That cupboard is AMAZING!!!!
    It looks sort of like Maria's, but I vote to leave it as is, no chicken wire.
    And don't you DARE paint that cupboard, the blue is divine. 🙂


  23. I LOVE this cupboard! I have such a weakness for primitive cupboards, especially when they're still with their chippy paint. I agree with Anne, leave it as it is! The openness shows off your wonderful finds inside.
    I also have a "thing" for spritzer bottles.

  24. Becky that is one beautiful cabinet! You lucky girl you!

  25. Morning T says:

    That cabinet is gorgeous, especially love all of your accessorizing in there. Heading over to vote for you now!!!

  26. Looooove the cabinet! ♥

  27. rx2massey says:

    Love that cupboard…

    My opinion, since you ask, I would leave the doors alone (no wire or screen)…especially since you will use it to "display".

  28. It's gorgeous! I like the idea of old screen on the doors, or nothing. Love the beautiful chippy blue patina. Just lovely!

  29. Carol Hake says:

    Becky, I new to your blog and so loving it! Love LOVE the new cabinet. I'm typically a western/ranch, vintage cowboy kind of gal but I've fallen in love with the Farmhouse Chic vibe you've got going on! Keep it up!

  30. You are a lucky Lady. I think Chicken wire would look awesome and you could still see the things inside. I will be looking for old cupboard like that when we get moved 🙂
    I will definately vote for you 🙂

  31. Do not paint it, do not put anything in the doors…..gorgeous just as is….

  32. Gorgeous! I LOVE the honest blue paint~ Makes my heart skip a beat:) Blessings and Thank You for stopping by my Facebook Page:)

  39. Wonderful cupboard. I love the worn look of it. Absolutely beautiful

  40. I wouldn't change a thing, it looks lovely. Great find!

  41. Lana says:

    What an amazing cupboard. I can see why you loved it. The doors look good with nothing, but I also love chicken wire. Maybe you could make a couple panels that you could easily switch out if you wanted to change the look. Love the display you have inside the cupboard as well.

  42. I love that cabinet! I think the idea of adding chicken wire to the opening is a good one. What a find!

  43. Shabby soul says:

    Oh it's enchanting! And that blue…!
    I would add chicken wire, but leave the inside exactly as it is now. Love love it!

  44. In love with your cabinet….would you mind terribly popping it in a suitcase and sending it to me in France? I am craving a piece just like it!

    Beautiful find!!!!!

    Greetings from France.

  45. So beautiful! I love it just as it is!

  46. *Gasp* gorgeous!!! Oh, I'm swooning! 🙂 Found you at FJI linky party, and I'm glad I did!

  47. May says:

    Don't think I would change a thing. Or you could live with it like this for a while and change it up later on when you need to shake things up.

  48. Lizykitty23 says:

    So in love with this cabinet and the color is to die for! love it..btw Voted for you! Good Luck!

  49. Beth says:

    Just found you. Love the cupboard! I vote glass if you can find the really old kind. Otherwise leave it open. You have it decorated so nice.

  50. Anne says:

    I love it. I want it!!!!

  51. Anita says:

    What a lucky find! I am partial to the chicken wire idea for the panels but then again, I have rooster wallpaper in my kitchen 🙂 Thanks for sharing…

  52. Woa… what a gorgeous piece! I love how tall and skinny it is! Virtually no realestate taken up. NEED!

    Shared on FJI Facebook and pinned for SNS 131. 🙂

  54. It's perfect! I wouldn't change a thing.

  55. Vintage Gal says:

    Becky ~ your cabinet is fab-u-lous. I would have taken it home too. I love it just the way it is, but, I can't wait to see what you do with it 😉

  56. Becky….oh my gosh that is stunning…and the way you have done the inside of it…needs to be in a magazine or book…its sheer heaven!!!!

  57. Me again…I would leave it as it is,don;t think you could improve on it in anyway…
