My husband, Gregory, has created a number of very interesting furniture designs of his own, and below I am sharing his very sweet small and narrow cupboard that can be hung on a wall, or can stand on a floor or a table. I commandeered this piece for our kitchen, and so he deemed it his prototype, because it has become mine. I love the color Gregory chose. It is Duck Egg by Annie Sloan, chalk paints. You can find this paint at The Purple Pear in Portland, Oregon.
I store our wash cloths in there, as well as my chocolate candy bars. Why chocolate bars? Alas, I cannot abide caffeine other than in the form of chocolate, provided it is prior to 3:00 PM. Otherwise, I hyperventilate and awaken in the night with the desire to catch a deep breath. I always adored my caffeine, but due to having overly indulged in it down through the years, I developed a form of an allergy. Do not over do it on anything, friends! Moderation is a must.
I can have a little bit of chocolate each morning with my decaffeinated coffee. If ever I do happen to intake caffeine after 3:00 PM, my night's rest is negligible, unless I can take a wee bit of an anxiety drug. Mind you, I seldom do this, because I never want to have another addiction, and of course, my doctor would never allow it. Colas for me are completely out of the question, although I do drink a caffeine free one when I can find it.
Back to the wee cupboard that Gregory designed. I have to confess that even among all of my wonderful antiques, this piece is actually one of my very favorites. I treasure it for Gregory's design and execution. It is special to me. He's not yet made another either.
Here it is in all its glory. Note the black mark on the floor. This is left over from when the house experienced a fire long ago, when the kitchen stove was in this spot. No stove has been there in at least 75 years. So we do not take credit for that splotch of black. But I like that lovely little point of history.
And here is the very top of the sweet cupboard.
