Hoosier Cabinet

I love our Hoosier cabinet.
We have had it for about 30 years.
I had lunch a few weeks ago with my friend, Pam, whose dad found this for us.  He found it in a lady's shed, covered in two coats of paint & mud dauber nests.  $25.00.  Pam & her brother, David, helped us refinish it.  Pam's dad, got me started on the project.  Pam & David, who were teenagers in our church youth group, would come to our house on Saturdays to help us get it finished.  I can't even begin to remember how many hours it took to finish the job.  Many!  We had fun working on the project.
Through the years I have enjoyed decorating it with different vignettes.

This cabinet is a treasure.  
Thank you Pharis family for making it possible.

What a fun piece of furniture. I have a girlfriend with a Hoosier Cabinet. She decorates it all the time for holidays and just when the mood strikes. You'll enjoy that for years to come.

I really love your Hoosier, Carol, and loved hearing the story of how you got it. You always decorate it just perfectly.
Be a sweetie,
