This past weekend found me pushing pause on the quilt making and picking up a paintbrush for the Cafe. This little cupboard was the ugliest rust brown. Several coats of white breathed some new life into it.
The decals were made using vintage "Happy Birthday" wrapping paper. I lined the cupboards with scrapbook paper and some crochet trim from an old piece I had in my scraps.
The bottom half is lined with the vintage paper. I left the corner that gives the copyright of 1962, the year I was born.
The biggest project of the weekend was this cut out cupcake. I had fun using my jig saw and drill. It took a few hours to complete. I hope the little ones that visit the cafe will enjoy peeking through to get their picture taken. Tomorrow marks the 50th day of the cafe opening and we are celebrating with an icecream social. Everything is better with icecream (and sprinkles!).
