The Metal Cupboard

While I am a bit hesitant to show the before picture before I have made it into what I am hoping it will be...nonetheless, here it is:

What do you think? I am trying to decide what it would be used best as...and that determines the color.

My options are: Pantry (black), Booth Shelving at Memory Lane (uncertain), Display Cupboard at Christmas (dark red), Display Cupboard at Halloween (dark orange or chocolate).

Fab find!! I'd definitely go with the pantry option, it would be perfect, I'd be worried painting it back might be a bit officey though, I'd go with a nice duck egg blue like in this image: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mdeangelis/3424379933/

I just went and looked and it really is a great shade!

But it won't work in that area of the kitchen/back family room...

Hmmmm...maybe a redo of the whole area, haha:)

Wonderful find. I'd love one of those for additional pantry space. I don't know what color would work best- I am on a red kick but that might not work for you.

Thanks for stopping by BellaDella! Thrilled to have you. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I will stop back by to visit and nose around your cute little blog when I have more time.

Wow, it's great. I would use it for the pantry too. You'll enjoy it all year round! Plus, it will be a money saver - because you'll have extra room to stock up on dry goods when they go on sale!

Awesome and for 5 bucks?!?!
I can totally see its pantry potential.

I have to add my vote for pantry. That is an awesome amount of storage and just the right size. Maybe do it in one of the accent colors you have in your kitchen, if you don't want the black? Great find.

I like the pantry idea...so vintage!
