Old liquor cabinet is my best guess

$20 liquor cabinet that I cleaned and painted green. It came with sliding doors on the bottom half, but I decided to go without them. Books are colorful thrift store finds with random, odd titles. Globe was found in a dirty, dark corner of my grandma's garage. $3 lamp was found at a garage sale (lamp shade bought new).

CottageElements writes: Love this piece and the color is awesome. You have great style. Ditto on Candy's comment, too. I found out the hard way and scorched a cupboard I had. But it looked great with the candles lite! Ha! Luckily I didn't burn down the house! Welcome to JMS and thanks again for sharing!

Junk_Sophisticate writes: Welcome to JUNKMARKET Style asalle! I love the color and clean lines of this piece! Great price too. I also want to stress the safety issue with the candles...coming from someone that had a similar display years ago. The candles ended up scorching the wood on the underside (even the short ones) and that was when I realized I better move them out.

Love your style and please show us more!
ps. your lamp is awesome...have that lampshade myself. :)
