Anyway, this place sends coupons via email, for weird amounts off of an item that is greater than $10 (not hard to find, here). I didn't have a current coupon, but I knew that they like to send them out just before holidays, like President's Day. I knew I wanted to find something similar to the cabinet that I found at The Blue Cupboard, shown above. Preferably something with less curvy, swirlyness, since I lean toward modern lines when it comes to furniture.
Stuck against a wall, piled high with stuff, was this cabinet:
|I cannot tell you how much I want to organize those stacks of books|
The best part? This puppy had been there for quite a while, and had been discounted a few times:
|From $150 to a mere 80 beans!|
|This card catalog is gorgeous... I just don't happen to have a spare $700|
Don't you love all of the different pulls?
|Loved this table; hated the wobbly legs on it.|
|These totally would have been mine, if they weren't the same foot. |
Klompen are awesome, and still sometimes worn by farmers in the Netherlands
|An entire stall full of Fiesta|
About a week after this trip, I did get a coupon in my email (24% off!), went back, and snagged the cabinet:
|So nice now that it is empty!|
The cabinet automatically locks, and this little handle has a push button that unlocks the door. I love it!
On my way out, I spied this tiny Moroccan-style stool and had to snag it, since it was $15, and qualified for an additional 24% off:
|To paint, or not to paint... that is the question.|
I haven't decided where it will go, or what it will be used as. Should it be a plant stand? Stool? Kid seat? And then come the decorative considerations... paint it? Leave it as it is? Try that tinfoil leafing technique I saw on Pinterest? Ideas are greatly appreciated.
