*dream* cupboard






















i have always wanted a cupboard with glass doors and vintage looking handles.
like those seen in the zakka magazines.
then i would place pieces of zakka on top of the cupboard and fill the inside with even more zakka.....


this is my version of the *dream cupboard*.
we took a bit of a risk as we got an interior design shop which we have never used before nor do we know friends who have used it before to make some of our furnitures including this cupboard.....


we did all the measurements, dimensions, design of the compartments ourselves....  along with pictures we got from zakka magazines to assist the shop with ensembling the pieces.


luckily (i have heard a lot of horror stories about furnitures turned out to be complete nightmares), the final product turned out to be very close to what i want....  only thing is, the material we chose turned out to be too white in color....  but i think with time, it will carry that "worn-out", shabby chic look i want....

and i love the handles to the cupboard.....  will try to take more pictures later....


as seen in the picture, the inside of the cupboard is still a bit of a mess....
it will take me some time to tidy it up....

i always want white furnitures w/ some country styles... but my "fung shui" minded hubby eric won't allow me...

i can imagine how happy and contented you are in your zakka corner !

hihi joop ~ oh the babies... it took them a couple of days to realize that this is their new home.... the first day was a bit chaotic as they refused to peepee/poopoo.... then they ate very little.... last couple of days have became better.... ^_^
