On the was to Concrete to see the eagles we decided to stop at Goodwill in Mt. Vernon. I've been looking for shelves to put in the kitchen hallway (big wide open space behind the baking island that is really wasted space). I need more space for my vintage dishes - and thought that would be perfect - but we walked in among the furniture and I decided that was NOT what I wanted.
And had the ugliest handles you could imagine . . .
But the price was right - and our son-in-law agreed to come down and pick it up for us the next day (he's always ready to help - our kids are so thoughtful!)
Here it is - after hours of Orange Oil Wax and several rags . . .
And now - new purple glass knobs - I actually broke two of the original handles trying to get them off.
Now isn't that pretty with my granny's Desert Rose dishes? I have other dishes to put in - and space on the bottom for two more shelves and more dishes and that nice wide drawer. This isn't in the kitchen - I moved two white cabinets that our son had built for us long ago out of the ex-toy room , white just looks better in the kitchen, filled them back up with dishes and put the new hutch in the music room - it looks spectacular there.
