What a massive favorite find Monday I have to share today. I mean massive in the physical sense (not just that it was a massive find – which it was!). I ran across this great Bassett china cabinet last week and had to have it.
I really thought (hoped) that it would fit in my minivan. I was wrong! I ended up having a couple of guys hoist it onto the top of my car and tie it up. I had to drive a half hour with it on top of my car to get home. Very nerve wracking but I made it! Yes, I like to live dangerously 😉
It has great french country lines and I really love the grilles on the glass inserts. However, it’s in really bad shape. One of the bottom doors is broken and the whole piece is really banged up and scratched. The inside glass shelves are missing and one of the front glass panels is broken.Even with all of the damage, I think you can see why I bought it. I love the great length of it and the top cornice is going to look amazing when painted.
Off to work!
