A Recent Find Medical Cabinet, Hotel Silver and Natures Gifts!

I found this original white painted medical cabinet at The Remnants of the Past show in San Louis Obispo. It was an amazing show filled with talented kind vendors selling treasures!!  
I love medical cabinets and this one is no exception!
It's paint was yellow and dingy dirty but I knew there was a chippy beauty underneath! I did a test spot, with one of my favorite cleaners ZEP Industrial Purple Cleaner, on the old oil based paint. After spaying the cleaner on, the dirt and yellow just dripped down the cabinet exposing the crackly white underneath....perfect! All clean and smells great.....

I decided to start filling it with hotel silver which was kind of dispersed all over the house. This is a heavy food dome from the Greenbrier Hotel founded in 1778.

These are individual salt and pepper sets used for hotel room or table service. LOve these!! I leave them a little unpolished,

 I like the older patina on some pieces.....

I love natural whether it be fabrics, paints colors or elements I find. It must be the outdoor farm girl upbringing. I can't go for a walk without coming home with something in my pocket... a pod, berries, an acorn or a dead carcass!!

A small hotel teapot.....I love when pieces are embellished with crests or the Hotel name.

Holiday time we break out the sterling and antler/horn cutlery set.....

more stuff in the cabinet.....
Hotel flatware and antler serving forks.....great for hordourves!

More nature....salvaged wasp nests served up on a dome covered hotel cake stand!

This is a tiny little hummingbird nest saved from the creeping fig on my front entryway. It's filled with dryer lint and is the size of a fifty cent piece...teeny!

Yes...this is a sweet little baby hummingbird who perished in his nest outside my front door!I found him as is while trimming and gave him a  safe resting place in my cabinet :(

A bleached turtle shell...perfect for me the white lover.

 A gorgeous piece of razor sharp coral....

....more nests, antler sheds and crusty ocean floats.

....beautiful preserved moths and butterflies

I bought these white berries from sweet creative Theresa of Garden Vintage Antiques.  It was years ago at Zapp Hall in Warrenton, Texas and I still love them! She had bunches of them and they reminded me of bittersweet but WHITE! Visit her here, I have purchased some of my all time favorite finds from her that are in my home. 

I little skull my son and I found hiking on the trails behind our house....maybe a baby coyote?

a Canadian Rock Ptarmigan taxidermy bird...keeping watch!

And last but not least....guess who else likes hotel silver? 

Only when its filled with fresh scrambled eggs or kibble!

or fresh water.....yes, spoiled rotten and loving it!

When I bought the piece I didn't know where in the world I had space to put it, but I knew I wanted to find a spot somewhere. With a little juggling, it fit right into this niche ...... :) 

The only thing I regret about the ROTP show was that I didn't have more time to talk with new FB friends, bloggers and vendors but they were so busy selling! That's a beautiful thing.....
I did see my friend and photographer Dusty Lu, and I met Maria of the beautiful Dreamy Whites blog which I so admire! These two are such great photographers I shutter when I post my pictures.....still learning :)

Thanks for stopping by~Debra

I love your new (old) cabinet and can't believe how lucky you were to get it so clean. It sounded like it was awful when you first got it! Love all your natural items displayed with the silver. I'm not so sure about the little hummingbird though. Won't it continue to decay? It's definitely neat to look at though. You have quite a mix of interesting finds. Your little doggie is sweet too. He reminds me of my sisters dog.

Love the cabinet and all your relics found inside... and the silver dome is my favorite!! Are you going a little lighter with your interior?? some of the glimpses I get of the backgrounds look like maybe you are... I think I need another invite over to your house!! :) Marcy

Debra Hall said...

You know me Marc....always changing and the answer is yes on back with more white! I missed it....Give me a ringy dingy, come on over and I'll make us a spot of tea, lol! lovin that dome too :)

Love all the natural elements mixed with the silver in your pharmacy cabinet .....just gorgeous!! I have never seen a bleached tortoise shell before! Do you know how that is done? I am just DYING to see more pics of your home....please post more....SOON!!!!! So glad I found your blog :o)

Love this cabinet and all the silver mixed with natural items. I agree with my sister that the hummingbird is a little strange.

Hey Debra, I love your gorgeous medical cabinet. The silver and nature items together make a stunning display. I adore everything you do...such inspiration here. I also love Thereasa :)

Love that old cabinet! I would definitely find a place in my home for this beautiful find. The entire post is beautiful. Would love to receive information on future showings in this area. It's not far from where I live.
