Vintage Green Hoosier

Believe it or not but this piece is a mixture of vintage and newly made!  We found the top portion and fell in love with it's charming vintage green color and unique drawers and cupboards.  Originally, it was a wall hanging cupboard in an old home.  After talking about it and trying to make it work, our resident woodworker (my dad), came to the rescue and said he'd make a table to turn the cupboard into a hoosier.  He's so amazing!  Mom matched the paint so we were able to make the table the same color as the original paint.  After popping some stunning glass knobs on it to match the originals, we all decided this truly looks like we found this in a vintage house.  

Dimensions: 87" tall,  47" wide,  30 1/4" deep, 
the top cupboard is 12" deep.


 The small drawer right above the table top.

There are 3 drawers in the table.

 The wood for the top of the table is from an old local hotel turned into  a home.  

Just wait until you see the other cupboard that we found in the same old house, same paint and same amazing look!   Photos coming soon.

I love this, you, your dad and mum have done an amazing job on this beautiful piece. I have a pine dresser I have been debating whether to paint or not, I'm leaning more toward paint now that I have seen this.
