Remember my recent post on our Bollinger Mill day trip in which I cryptically gushed about a fabulous piece of furniture I found at an antique store? Well, today I brought it home!
I know it may not be everyone's cup of tea (Dad, I'm looking at you!) but I'm pretty much obsessed with it. The store owner said it would be a great piece to restore, and I kind of shouted, "No! I love it how it is!" It was painted many years ago and the effect of the paint chipping off and rust underneath has given it a great patina.
It has glass sliding doors on the top with two adjustable shelves inside and two pull out drawers on the bottom.
And I got a deal! After watching lots of Cajun Pawn Stars episodes with David's family last night, I was inspired to test my negotiation skills. I scored it for $65 instead of the original price of $80 (which I still think is a steal - truth be told I would've paid well over $100 for it).
Many thanks to David and Ramon for getting it safely from the antique store to my bathroom!
