Edited to add: I’ve chosen this post as my favorite Junkin Find for 2010 to link to Linda’s Junkin Finds Friday party. Hope you like this find as much as I did.
I still haven’t officially found a home for this piece, right now it’s in the hall outside the upstairs bathroom, waiting for me to decide if I want to use it for towel storage and such. Maybe in 2011 I’ll write about this one again…..
That’s right, a china cabinet sitting out at the curb with a free sign on it. I was on my way home from work yesterday and passed by it. One quick look and I knew I had to go back.
The glass is missing, but everything else was with it.
Especially the key.
The 2 shelves were sitting on the bottom.
I just love the wood cut-out that goes over the glass.
The 2 tone detailing is understated, yet pretty.
The lines are simple.
A couple scratches along the side are the only thing wrong with this other than the missing glass.
I think I’m in love.
So now I must ‘fess up.
I have 2 more of these in my storage space right now.
Does 3 make a collection?
Maybe I should group them together? ;)
I actually spent $15 for one of them. Can you guess which one it was?
There is something about these old cabinets that speaks to me. It could be because my Gramma had one at her house and kept all sorts of cool stuff in it (besides dishes).
We would examine everything through the glass each time we visited, and on rare occasions she would unlock it so we could get a closer look.
Ah, what was it that Proper Prim Deb wrote about in a recent post?
Memory hunting. That’s it! So true. Check it out if you haven’t read it yet.
Gotta go now, it’s trash day somewhere…..
Linking this up to Linda’s Nifty Thrifty Tuesday #23 over at Coastal Charm.
