Repurposed cabinet

My husband is greatly talented when it comes to creative ways to repurpose objects. I wanted a cabinet to store my Blue Ridge Pottery dishes. I wanted it old and weathered looking.

He had these old windows that he and his father removed from his aunt’s house back in the late 50s-early 60s. How he kept them intact all this time is a mystery to me. He also had an old barn door that had a beautiful, weathered gray patina. Just gorgeous.

He took the windows for the doors. He used the old barn door for the two sides and the back. I love everything about this old cabinet. It’s like he peered into my mind and saw the image I had pictured. Perhaps 35 years of marriage will do that.
