Our house is designed with a very open plan and tall ceilings. I've been wanting to find a taller than average piece of furniture to put against the wall near the television to balance out the decor. If I could find something that would also be fun for storing quilts, that would be an added bonus. Last week, after stopping at the DMV to get new tags for my car, I decided to visit an antique store across the street. Right inside the door, I saw this....................................
The conversation across the dinner table that evening went something like this: "Honey, I saw something today that I thought you and I could get each other for Christmas... maybe even early. I think you would really like it and it's something you've been wanting, I know!"
Well, long story short, when we got up Saturday morning, my sweet husband suggested that we go to the antique shop and take a look at that thing HE had really been wanting! By the end of the day it had come home with us and taken up the blank spot on the wall next to the TV. It took some elbow grease to liven up the dry wood with Howard Restor-A-Finish, but now it's true beauty is shining through. The handmade cupboard was built with several quirky details making it a perfect fit of this nut house.
Open the door, and it's all decorated for fall. I'm pretty excited about having a way to display quilts though out the year. My honey is really excited about it too..at least he pretends so shockingly well!
