For those of you who read my post yesterday, this is the piece I was referring to - a HUGE china cabinet - not one scratch, knick, chip, blemish or imperfection...........$100!!!!! Can you believe it?? I really was almost hyperventillating when I saw the price. Talk about not showing your cards - girls, I would make a terrible poker player. I practically laid myself across the floor in front of it terrified that someone else would snatch it away from me! I guarded it with my life. Even after the sweet-as-could-be saleslady put the "sold" sign on it, I was still afraid to leave it! I wasn't completely satisfied until it made it safely in its new home in my living room. Where, if fits perfectly! Thank goodness, because it took alot of convincing to get hubby to understand that I just "HAD TO HAVE" this piece of furniture. Don't forget, it's HUGE, and we basically had no place to put it. After some sweet-talking, I got hubby to move the computer desk to a new spot to make room and he actually liked it better this way. And certainly after he saw my one true bargain, he was even happier. I could barely sleep last nite, all of these visions of how I'm going to fill this were swirling around in my head. I think I'm going to decorate it for spring and put all of my bunnies in it. Oh, and did I mention that the light works too?? Isn't that unbelievable. I didn't' even care if the light didn't work, but it did!
I even kept the "sold" sign on for my picture and added a close-up of the $99 goodwill sticker (there were a few of those on there, that's all the white spots you see). I just had to show that!
It is engraved "Stanley Furniture" on the inside pull-out drawar. The color is kind of hard to describe and the picture doesn't do it any justice. It's sort of a sage green with specks of black (my darn camera stinks!) - even the inside of the drawars that you can't even see unless your inside of them are painted.
The detailing on the facing glass doors are what really caught my attention. On both the the right and left doors there is a criss-cross pattern of guilded wood that just makes it so unique. There are two glass shelves for storing my goodies and lots of storage underneath too.
Now you know what it's just screaming for?? One of Nancy's adorable tassles (yes, I will be ordering another one Nancy girl!). They are available at her Etsy store and are just gorgeous. For any of you who don't know Nancy (and how could you not???) her blog is definitely worth visiting - just click on my blog list - she is Southern Lady (Home is the Hearts Nesting Place).
Speaking of talented, wonderful bloggers, just look at the frame I received in the mail this week. Another beauty, this one comes from Kristen over at Kristen's Creations. Her Etsy store is also full of wonderful goodies!!! Doesn't this look great on my hutch?? Thanks Kristen!!!!
I apologize for going on and on about my hutch, I just couldn't wait to share this with all of you, my new friends, who mean so much to me!
Have an amazing day!
