I wish this were mine ~ sigh ~

Hello my friends ~ I just wanted to let you know how much Mr. Vintage and I appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers.  You have made me smile ~ each and every one of YOU.

I cannot express, how overwhelmed I was with the outpouring of love from all of you.  I read all of your comments with tears in my eyes.  THANK YOU.

Well, as you know Mr. Vintage is trying to do his best.  He can't do much AND he's bored to death.  He has always been a doer and loves to work on things.  A few weeks back, a friend gave him this to work on.  It was our friend's grandmother's cabinet and he wanted to use it.  It's been in his garage for years.

Here is the top piece

This is the bottom piece ~

A complete rust bucket.

I was thinking to myself (Are you kidding? He'll never finish this)  But, Mr. Vintage is one of a kind.  He has worked and worked at it, a little at a time.  I did help him with some of the painting.  Now  ~ sigh ~ I wish it was mine

This is the sweetest little cabinet I have ever seen.  I love the robbin's egg blue colour.  Mr. Vintage never ceases to amaze me.  Although he does not feel well and he is in constant pain, he pushes through.  I think that is the reason I fell in love with this man.

The enamel top pulls out for more work space in the kitchen.  Gino is going to LOVE this cabinet.

What do you think?

I can't wait to hear from you...




  1. That is a beautiful cabinet. It is sort of a Hoosier only in metal. I don't think I've ever seen one like it. Your husband did a beautiful job in refinishing it. Bless his heart! Maybe that will be his therapy, something to keep him going a bit at a time. Blessings to you. Pamela

  2. Oh yes ! I wish it was mine too !

  3. Sweet little thing for sure! Great job you two! I hope Mr. Vintage feels better each passing day.. take care and have a great weekend!


  4. It's the robin's egg blue!!! Mr. Vintage did an awesome job...your friend will be so happy!

  5. Oh do I love that!! I have 2 enamel top tables, one was my Grandmothers. But that is an amazing transformation. Hope it got his mind of things for awhile.

  6. Love that little cabinet, never seen one like it and Mr. Vintage out did himself!!!!

  7. What an amazing job by an amazing man. Keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers. I hope Mr. V. begins feeling better and finds small projects to occupy his hands and mind. I think you are both probably amazing. Hugs!

  8. OMGosh! It is absolutely gorgeous! I'm so envious!
    Mr. V, you have worked some serious magic!

  9. That is fantastic! I can't imagine what your DH can do when he's at 100%!

  10. Oh that cabinet is wonderful. I love the blue color too. It would be so cute not only in a kitchen, but I could see it in a bathroom holding toiletries and towels.


  11. Your hubby did a wonderful job on the hutch! Love the color too! I read your past post and will be praying for you and your hubby's pain. You certainly have a full plate. Take care.

  12. Prettier than new, don't know how Me. Vintage does it.

  13. That is one beautiful cabinet! I can't believe he was able to work on something like that with the nerve damage and pain he has. Wow, he is awesome.

  14. Well, I LOVE the cabinet too. What a great job he did on it.
    I am sure (despite his pain) he was glad to have something to do. To help him Push pass this pain he is in and boredom.
    I pray for his continued well being and your ability to COPE sweety.

  15. Hi Marianne,
    I absolutely LOVE this cabinet! Even the color! It wouldn't match my kitchen but I would surely change the color just for this cabinet! lol! Your husband did an awesome job.
    I'm so sorry to hear that he is in so much pain. I am sending prayers your way. And I'm sorry to hear that you are having to sell your home. We had to sell our (dream) home because of health reasons too.I was really sad as this was our home for good-we thought. But our health is far more important. I have to say I have adjusted quite well and I know you will too. Just have faith that God will take care of you. I just know He will.
    Healing hugs and many blessings to you and your husband,

    It is gorgeous! And that robin egg blue is just beautiful.
    Your husband does great work! I'm so sorry to hear he is
    in pain. Wow, what a guy to push on as he has. I can easily
    see why you love him.
    I will continue to pray.

  17. I am just getting caught up with you. I am so sorry about your husbands health issues. I know what it is like to worry all day at work and to come home and stress all night. I know that the prayers we recieved from blog world helped. You are in my prayers. your husband did a wonderful job on that cupboard.

  18. That is wonderful. What a great job. I can understand why you wish it was yours. xx

  19. Gino's cabinet turned out so well - Mr. Vintage has a special talent. We sure are lucky to be friends and we appreciate you BOTH for everything that you do. We're keeping our fingers crossed that every day is a better one than the day before it.

  20. I love, love, love it! The colour is perfect for the vintage design.
    Your husband sounds like mine, it's good for their sanity to have a project to work on.
    And you are so very, very welcome.
    Love and prayers, Cindy
