This old cabinet has been at my mom's house for a very long time!
So let me tell you a little story.
I've always admired my mom and dad for their taste in wonderful,
old, vintage, special, and beautiful furniture. You see my dad can make something
beautiful out of nothing and this was one of those things.
This cabinet was one that I had admired for a very very long time.
I had honestly been thinking how I wish I could find something like it
to put in my kitchen/dinning room after we had remodeled it.
So one day i'm sitting in my living room watching something boring on TV and
not really feeling very well when mom came over to visit for a few and she had
been working and thinking about changing some things in her house, and was
telling me about what she wanted to do, when she suddenly said....
"You know I think i'm gonna take that big cabinet out of my kitchen and sell it in
the next yard sale" Well let me tell ya didn't take me long to perk up!! LOL
Mom, I said, are you sure you want to do that? and how much are you
gonna ask for it if you do? $50.00 or so most likely she says and I said
SOLD!!!! Told her to make sure it's what she wanted to do and talk to dad
about it and if it's ok I want it. The next day we moved my new treasure home.
Where it stands used to be a counter and two cabinets which I had hubby tear out
and now I have this beauty......I smile every time I walk through my kitchen/dinning room now.
Isn't it wonderful how a piece of furniture can make a dreary day much brighter!!!
Do you have something in your home that makes your day each time you see it?
I'd love to hear about it if you do.

Huggggies till next time, Annette
