Corner Cupboard


Corner cupboards are fun. Each one is different. They look best when they fit the room, from floor to ceiling. This cupboard replaced a wood stove. The corner had a brick hearth and brick faced walls. We covered the brick walls with sheetrock and the brick hearth with flooring to match the room.

The design was an amalgamation of various 18th Century features. I composed the design to use the best of what appealed to the customer after looking at many pictures. We think that the results are stunning.

The finish has an undercoat of salmon colored milk paint with top coats in blue-green. It is rubbed through and oiled to give gloss and a feeling of age.

The carved rosettes are of dogwood flowers, a motif I have used before and perfectly suited to New England furniture.
