New Canning Cabinet ~ Thanks, Dad!

I bought myself a “new” cabinet that I put into the north facing enclosed porch…it’s housing all of my canning jars, jams & jellies (and soon to be veggies), and some of the older jars that I’ve gotten from mine and my husband’s grandmas.

There are 3 shelves…two with glass bottoms. There is a light in it too…only I have a really old house and there is only one outlet out there, umm two outlets. One in the icebox/laundry room and one next to the double cast iron sinks…both on the other side of the room. 😦

It’s missing the front glass panels, but the lady I got it from has them and I’ll pick them up next week when she gets back from the east coast. But I may find some metal/tin and punch a design in it like the old pie safes. It’s very blue…not sure what color I’ll repaint it. Seems I have a lot of sage green and jadite green in my kitchen area…maybe one of those. I’m fond of barn red too.

Pretty cool for $45, no?! A couple of ladies were rearranging their booth at a local antique mall and she wanted the cabinet out so she could put up a differernt display piece. I said MINE MINE MINE! My dad sent me some money for my upcoming birthday…this is what I bought myself! Had some leftover for dinner and margaritas at Chevy’s for my husband & I.

Hardware to hold the glass panes in…

Hinge hardware…I’m thinking of cleaning off the paint so the metal is showing…or painting ithem black.
