An Aqua Cupboard and Brown Transferware

By now you may have seen most of my farmhouse kitchen reveal. The final thing I would like to show you is in the far corner behind the peninsula.

This little aqua cupboard is a piece I picked up at an estate sale several years ago. It was this color when I bought it and I didn’t have to do a thing to it other than fill it with treasures.farmhouse_kitchen_reno_after_24

And fill it I have!

I previously had a hodge podge of mostly vintage dishes and glassware displayed inside. I have a small but growing collection of brown transferware that was scattered here and there, mostly unnoticed. I wasn’t doing it justice so I decided that the aqua cupboard was the perfect home for it. I love the visual impact that grouping a collection brings.

One of the amazing things about the cupboard is the way it was made.

The inside has stair step notches running from top to bottom on each side. The notches allow for every possible shelf adjustment imaginable.They don’t make them like they used to!

My favorite piece in the collection is this bowl that my mom used next to her kitchen sink to hold her sponge.

I wouldn’t say I’m on the hunt for more brown transferware, but if I just happen to come across any at a rock bottom price I’ll make room for it in my collection.
