Is There A Doctor In The House?



There may not be a doctor in the house, but there certainly could be a really cute vintage medical cabinet.  This was a great find for me and a piece that I thought would make a great little storage cabinet next to my desk, however a gal just can't keep it all and away it went to the store.

Made of metal and painted white with a cool industrial stainless steel top, this little gem screams farmhouse style all the way home!  A top drawer and cabinet space provide plenty room to hold bathroom, craft room, kitchen, or office accessories.  A light bulb just came on in my head and how about using this to hold potting soil (in the drawer) and, below, hand shovels, gardening gloves and small clay pots?  



The sides have metal towel bars.  So cute for kitchen or bath towels - or gardening tools!  And to finish it off, it gets around good on its little caster wheels.

How about using this outside for the hubby's BBQ?  An instant buffet on wheels.  Or even a mini bar?  There's plenty of room below to store your favorite tasty beverage.  See what a versatile piece this is?  Lovvvvve.


Have a super weekend everyone!

I love that cabinet. I have a similar one , but it's an open shelf on the bottom, but it does have the cute railing things and the casters. Love the finish on it. I wish I lived closer-that would be in my trunk coming home right about now!
