Rita, Rita Cabinet Maker Extraordinaire

I had a vision to remake my living room into my art room and started looking at old doors. First I was going to get old doors and nail against the wall for what I call "the look".

Then it came to me.......why just put doors on a wall, make them functional by making storage cabinets out of them. I found the old doors that were oh so pretty and crackly and shabby chic and then thought of Rita :} because she knows "the look" and she creates "the look" in all of her work.

I love that Rita is such a mover and shaker and works with wood so I asked if she would build me cabinets from my old doors. She figured it out and said sure. She worked on them between her fab soldering classes and oh so elegant Chateau de Fleurs.

Her husband, Dean came with her to help (no substitute for muscle :} They worked together to give me a killer wall of cabinets. Thank you both.

Check out my cabinets.

Hmmmmmmm I should have had Rita sign her pieces since they are art to me :}
