Craigslist Freebie

Mark found this on Craigslist today. It was free. An old built-in kitchen cabinet from a home built in 1928.

These doors attach to the front. A brass latch and two porcelain knobs are the hardware.

We plan to fix this baby up. Some additional pieces of trim will be added. The bottom of the cabinet will be cut and leveled and I will be painting it for sure. What color would you paint it? I was thinking maybe a robin's egg blue or another pastel...or maybe a sunny yellow like the cute cabinet they show on the intro to the show Cash and Cari  (a new favorite).
Not sure if I will keep it. I may fix it up and sell it. I'm already maxed out with lots of furniture and little space. However, I do have a soft spot for old cabinets.
I'll keep you posted as this project progresses. Please let me know your ideas and thoughts. Have you ever scored something cool for free on Craigslist?
Until next time,

  1. Awesome! I'm not very good at redoing anything. If you're going to sell it, I might stay with a neutral color. Can't wait to see it finished!~

  2. What an awesome find! I vote for the robin's egg blue. Miss you guys, Lisa

  3. I vote for a barn red... and I'll buy it! Seriously! I've been wanting an old cabinet for my kitchen to replace the pressed board pantry where I keep all of Andrew's stuff. This one is a beauty! I swear you guys have a force field for cool stuff! ~ Alexis
