Vintage Green Cottage Shelf

Thank you Suzanne at Coloradolady for hosting Vintage Thingie Thursday!

Below is my latest vintage find and I'm so happy to have found it! Since...we're planning to build a vacation cottage I'm planning on incorporating this into my kitchen above one of the cabinets. I don't know if I'll paint it a different color or just keep it this lovely vintage green. What do you think? We found this at a moving sale in Keene, NY for cheap, cheap! Much less than an upper cabinet would cost...don't you think? I explained in an earlier post...I'm hunting down treasures for our cottage that we'll build someday. I hope to incorporate all of my finds into the cottage and show you the whole house decorated with my treasures. Until then...I'm continuously on the hunt! Happy hunting to you! ~amy

Very cute! I have a small green cabinet for my kitchen I found at an antique store, same green. I have loved it for almost 2 years...this fall she is getting a makeover though...Not sure what the outside color will be but the inside will be light to show off my fiesta dishes.

Welcome to Vintage Thingies Thursday!! How fun you are hunting treasures for your future cottage, to me that is the fun part of it all...the finding, decorating, and planning. Great shelf...perfect for the kitchen.

Have a great VTT and a wonderful weekend.

I like that green but I think it seems too dark for a kitchen. I think the shade of green that was used on vintage wood-handled kitchen utensils would be nice for a kitchen.
