It's school hols at our place so there has been little time for blogging and blog reading but I am so excited about a recent purchase...I just have to do a little show and tell.
I saw this piece advertised at the local second hand place. It looked lovely in the photograph so I phoned the owner and went around to check it out. I have two other matching pieces already but I decided to go home and think about it for a bit. I know!!! And it wasn't the price...it was only $80!!! I just needed to reshuffle some other stuff about to make way for this beauty. It's in very good condition (or it was before the delivery guys put a couple of character dings in it. I guess that what happens when you are a cheapo and have your dad and dad-in-law pick it up for you ;)
I absolutely LOVE it!
I moved the other cabinet up into our playroom area.
You can just see it peeping out over our half wall-next to the map.
Now my photography skills are pretty crappy. Despite having a decent camera, my pics are very hit and miss but you get the idea. Note to self: must learn to use camera out of auto mode.
I gave it a polish with some orange oil (which cost more than half the price of the cabinet) and it came up beautifully. I am still 'dressing it' but for now I have gone with the 'less is more' approach. Should I add a few more trinkets? What do you think?
