One Cupboard to Start the Kitchen

The big cupboard is off the porch and in the kitchen!  This is the "before", James is going to sand the old paint for me and remove the hardware.  I am going to do a distressed white chalk paint finish that should still look old, but clean, which one does desire in a kitchen.  I think I am getting cast iron bin pulls in an eastlake design, but I have to measure to see if they will fit.  The big top piece goes on this--it is still out on the porch, upside down.



We also needed new air vent covers and I really didn't want the regular white shutter looking covers.
A trip to the salvage yard brought us an antique cast iron grate--James cut it in half and we have 2 perfect vent covers--well, almost, they still need cleaning and white paint (I do actually love the green chippy stuff, but decided the white will go more with the rest of the kitchen).
