New Cupboard

Hello my blogging friends! 
 Hope everyone is enjoying their Summer!
  The last few weeks have been hot and humid here in PA but it makes for a nice finish on my distressed prim pieces that Jeff is creating!  For some reason I love the look I get when I'm putting the finishing touches on these wood pieces.  
I wanted to share this new cupboard that he made using an old 4 pane window.  He took the glass out and inserted some recycled window screen in its place.  I painted this one in Chestnut.  It worked well as a display piece for the show in Caledonia yesterday too!  
Sorry this inside shot is a little blurry! I should have taken the time to check them out before I put the camera away. 
I only had a 10' by 10' space at this show so we used the wood appliance covers for height instead of the wood crates.  It was a nice change. 
This is such a beautiful location for a show!  Such a peaceful little stream!
The shot from the bridge looking towards the show.  Lots of trees, the smell of charcoal fires and the thrill of the kids wading in the stream creates a nice relaxing atmosphere!
We will be leaving for our next show in 11 days!!! Lake Erie here we come! Can't wait but have lots to finish up before next Thursday gets here!  
Don't forget the Primitive Handmades Mercantile June update will be on Friday too! Our theme this month is Watermelon, Strawberries and Olde Thyme Toys!  Very interested to see if anyone comes up with something for olde thyme toys! Shall be an interesting update! Don't miss it!
