Primitive Olde Buttery





 Welcome friends, today I am sharing pics of the Buttery cabinet my husband made for me.  I put in my order and he graciously obliged.  After the difficult windmill project the Buttery was a breeze.  We used "old" red cedar bead board that originally came from a vintage kerosene powered egg incubator.  Three of the boards still had a rusty metal vent with screen intact, these were used to control heat and humidity.  I used linseed oil as a finish to bring back the wood's natural color, the shelves were painted and then antiqued.  I am quite  pleased with the Olde Buttery, it is perfectly prim  ..................

  2. Wow, your hubby is a darling for building it. My own hubby cleaned up my whole potting bench and area yesterday so I'm not complaining, still, I wish I had an arbor like that Can't wait to see it after you've "twigged" it.
