(Portions of today’s post will be a repeat to my Facebook friends, and for that I apologize. Today’s post has a little more detail.)
One day last week, Motor Man and I had an out-of-town business trip. And it just happened to take us by one of my favorite antique malls. And we just happened to stop. And I just happened to find a treasure.
I had seen this little cabinet in there a few months ago on my last trip. And since that time, I had decided on a use for it, as well as the perfect spot for it in our home. I just had to wait to see if it were still available.
And it was.
It’s only about 31 inches tall, and the drawers are 11 inches square. Of course, I have no way of knowing its original use. However, a former schoolmate, with extensive knowledge about antiques, commented that the drawer pulls were similar to those used on filing cabinets in the late 1800’s/early 1900’s.
I cleaned it up, used vintage-print paper to line the drawers, and now am using it for jewelry.
I’m still experimenting with decorating the top of the cabinet. For now, it’s a tiny quilt (purchased several years ago in Lancaster, Pa.) and a small old basket.
I sure am glad that little cabinet waited for me.
