When my husband's grandmother passed away we inherited her kitchen cabinet. It is not a Hoosier Cabinet. It was an inexpensive cabinet that they think was purchased from the Sears catalog.
When it first arrived we were living in a small house and it lived in the garage. A couple of moves down the road and it made it into the house. My youngest daughter always loved it and it lived in her room for quite a while. It has been painted white, I tried to strip it, I painted flowers on it, and it has never gotten the respect it deserved. Last summer I attempted to make amends to the cabinet. I painted it with quality chalk paint and polished it with two kinds of wax. I did not take any before pics of it. This makes me sad because the before/after pictures would have been amazing not because of my talent but because it had been so abused by the last set of movers.
Here she is, the old white chest (as she was called for many years at our house)!
The quilt folded on her was my husband's grandmothers quilt. I love red and turquoise together.
