The Versatile Welsh Cupboard {Revisited}

Photobucket


This is almost a recycled post I wrote several months ago, but I wanted to update the pictures of my cupboard since I got a new camera for Valentine's Day.  You can read my original post here.

I love Romantic Country decorating, and one of my favorite pieces of furniture is the Welsh cupboard (or Irish dresser, or English hutch, or American plate stacker).  Whatever name you call it, it is one versatile and functional piece. By definition, it is a cabinet with a large enclosed storage base either composed of cabinets and/or drawers with an upper area of open shelves.

I really like the butcher block top and the bright white paint.  We have used it in the kitchen, dining room, and now it is in our keeping room.  The roomy drawers store many of our place mats and our napkins.  It also houses our everyday MacKenzie-Childs dishes.

I will be joining the Heart of the Home Party: Favorite Cupboards @  Note Songs.

Until next time...

Blessings!
