Altered cabinet

Hello everyone. I hope you are all having a great week so far. Here in what is called Sunny Florida is anything but sunny. We have been having horrible weather. The lightning and thundering has my poor Roscoe hiding anywhere and everywhere. The rain is great for the grass, plants and trees, but this weather stinks.

But enough with this weather and on to my altered little cabinet.

I used the DCWV French Country paper stack. Tammy from California sent it to me because I could not find it anywhere. She was so sweet to have done that. She does not have a blog but her name on youtube is sscrafter1. The inspiration came from Juliana on youtube. Her channel is iluvvintagescrap, her blog is:

Here is my take on the small cabinet:

It started like this yesterday. After I painted it, I realized I had mixed 2 different types of paints and had to redo it all. Notice the mess on my crafting table. EEEEEKKK.

 Here is the front. I used on one of the door knobs from Michaels 1.50 bin, which I had bought for 30cents.

 I used alot of different embellishments on the inside of the door. I used mesh on the background, lave trim that Marlene gave to me. Marlene's blog is:  It is super cute, looks like banners so I cut them up and glued them down. I put some flat back pearls on the flowers. I  glued on the ends a bow made of twine and also glued some pearls on it. The butterfly in the center is a button that I bought at a garage sale. On the bottom I glued down a flower I made with some lace, some pearl sprays and a mirrored butterfly from Michaels. The tiny flowers around are from a garage sale as well.
 This is the top part of inside of the cabinet. The angel I left as it came. I paid 50cents for it one of the  local chinese warehouses. I sat it on the clear box that the knob came in. I put some lace trim in a mint green inside of it first. The tiny spool is from Joanns. I wrapped a small trim around it then added a resin flower and the flowers are also from a garage sale. the tiny glass bottle on has tiny pearls in it with a tiny key. The flower in the middle is from Sherry Wolfe at She made them out of clay, I did stickle it in blues, pinks and whites. The large glass jar on the right side is stuffed with a pearl trim that has hanging hearts on it. I glued a trim around it and then a light blue pearl trim in the middle. I glued to the top a small doillie and then a acrylic flower. Some seam binding around the top and hung an angel I made with my beads. I added to the back a frame from Michaels. The image is from a paper collection I cut out. Some tiny flowers around the bottom and some random embellishments to finish it off.
 Here is the inside top and bottom.
 The bottom part has a spool with some vintage lace around. Some flower trim, seam binding, 2 small flowers and a flat back pearl. The middle glass bottle has some pearls in and then I wrapped some of the pink mesh strips and topped it off with a flower. The box on the right hand side was all white. I wrapped it in some of the same paper, added some pearl trims and then put some lace inside. I added 3 of my favorite stick pins and then lots of tiny flowers to finish it off.

Isn't this banner so cute. I love that trim. Thank you Marlene for giving me a piece.

Well, this is my latest creation. I hope I can inspire you all, as much as I was by all the talented ladies I mentioned above.

Have a great rest of the week.

The cabinet is so cute, I love the paper DCWV and all the embellishments. I like the angel and the pink color you used(pink is my favorite color). I liked that you used butterflies. I just finished a card for my niece with butterflies and will post it soon. PS- how is the craft sale coming along? Hugs always!
