Auction Buy


Oh yeah!  This sweet cupboard/cabinet is sitting in my basement... : ) ...just waiting to be filled with supplies from my sewing room.  I picked up a lot more supplies from the auction too!  Please don't click to enlarge--the graininess of the photo could hurt your eyes!  It was dark down there for pictures, so I had to compensate ALOT with the camera and photoshop. 


It's a "Sellers"  kitchen cabinet, with all the hardware and it even has the sifter yet.  The bottom cupboard doors need a little "adjusting" to close, but they will.  And, even though we don't have a lot of painted furniture...I think this goes with all our vintage oak furniture in the basement.  I love Art Deco and that is a (mild) theme down stairs. 


I did have to pull out some "lovely" contact paper in the top shelves, but it came out clean and easily.  It's a low profile piece and goes right along this empty wall without really sticking out into the room at all.  If you're familiar with these cupboards you know they are light weight (cheap wood!) and it really was easy to move.  

I'm just so pleased because finding this and getting it was totally unexpected.

I'll post more auction finds this week.  Whew, it was a hot one there!
