Would You Buy It Wednesday - 'glass-in' two door cupboard

The price was right (garage sale find) - but now that I have the cupboard home I am wondering where I can use it in the house. My thought when I bought it on the weekend was paint supply storage but I don't seem to have any wall space.

This post is linked to Junker Newbie, Would You Buy It Wednesday.

I'm planning to paint the cupboard and then figure out where it can go. I took a 'post writing' break and  started to catch up on reading all the posts I follow, and just as I was thinking about storing and cleaning up my paint supplies, Kristin of My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia wrote about Paint Organization.She got some of her ideas from an earlier post by Brooklyn Limestone: Simplifying Our Stash., timely, and very helpful suggestions.

So, here is the cupboard, and below, the 'in use' paint and supplies that are currently in 5 different locations. Seems like a solution to a problem, just need to figure out the 'where'. 

I walked around and took pictures of my 'active' stash
of paint and related supplies
(furniture painting supplies, not even touching
on house/fence paint).


  1. That cupboard has a lot of potential! With the glass doors it would be a great place to display a collection of sorts. You have annie sloan paint? I would love to try it sometime.

  2. I would certainly have bought the cupboard, isn't it too nice to be used for paint storage?
    Thanks for stopping by earlier.

  3. Oh, I definately would have bought it!! And I agree with Maggie, I almost hate to see it used for paint storage. Maybe once you cute it up you will think of a place for it.

  4. I'd have bought it too, it's awesome! I don't know where I'd put it either, but even if you just hang it in the garage or a shed you'll like seeing it when you get out your paint supplies.

  5. I would have bought that too but not for paint storage

  6. You have quite the stash of paints!! Is the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint very expensive?
    LOVE the cabinet. Of COURSE you had to buy it!

  7. Great bargain, would look great cleaned up and painted and then used anywhere, but if paint storage is what you need, then that's the best use for it! Thanks for sharing!

  8. You could "artistically" arrange the paint cans. :@


Thanks for visiting. I read and appreciate all your comments. Joy
