1940’s Telephone Book Ephemera Cabinet

I found this sweet wall cabinet at a thrift store today.
I think it was originally a medicine chest,
but the door had been removed.
Forgot to take a picture before I started…it’s becoming a habit!
I’m loving the 1949 phone book I got at an auction last weekend,
so I thought the beautifully aged pages would be a nice addition to this cabinet.
It was interesting to note which local businesses are still around today,
and funny to see phone numbers with only 4 digits.

I love projects that are quickly rewarding!

Side Note – My Wonderfully Made is having an awesome giveaway
of Annie Sloan’s chalkpaint, which I am dying to try. 
I’ve got 2 kitchen tables that are awaiting paint jobs and I’d love to try the chalkpaint.
Hop over and visit her site and enter the giveaway!

Linking to these parties this week…
