I would like to share some of my makings with you today again.
Once that was done I needed to make hangers for the dresses, which I created from old wire and pieces of broken wooden coat hangers. I painted and distressed the wood and for the hanging hook I twisted the wire and formed it around the wood.
And last but not least ...
My treasure I would like to share with you.
This is an old Victorian infant school locker (long name). I bought this cupboard about 10 years ago back in England off of eBay. It came from an old school that was being torn down and I was so lucky to happen to see it on eBay, bid on it and WIN!!
It is from the late 1800's and has three compartments. You can see the old airing holes in each door and each door has also a name tag for the student's name.
It took me weeks to hand strip it and clean it up. The hooks are the original ones but the numbers are replacements since only the outline was left from the originals and that's how I knew the number for each locker.
I am so in love with this cupboard! I have it standing in my hallway, so everyone can see it's beauty as they come into my home!
I only have a few pieces of Victorian furniture, but the ones I have are really special. I will have to show you my biggest treasure one day. It is a 45 drawer cupboard also from the late 1800's.
I wish you a peaceful and creative day,
