So when I heard about VictoriaElizabethBarnes.com‘s link party for fav. finds, I wasn’t sure what I should share. But, something awesome and amazing happened…I went to a George sale on Saturday. He convinced us to buy this thing. We were going back and forth and couldn’t decide rather to get it. And George gave us a GREAT deal. I mean, I could sell it on craigslist for easily double what I paid. But I think we’re going to keep it. Have you guessed what it is yet? I’ll give you a hint:
It’s a bar cabinet.
Isn’t she pretty. Guess what I paid…guess. $100. and he threw in a bunch of neat old books with it. It’s burled walnut veneer on the outside with some maple veneer on the inside. There’s a broken mirror but nothing a glass shop couldn’t replace for me. It’s in excellent condition otherwise. The varnish on the veneer is a bit worn but I really think that a real light sanding and a fresh coat of poly is all it needs. The legs are scuffed a bit but nothing some furniture polish can’t fix.
Ahhh. I love it! As soon as we got it home I knew it was awesome. I can’t believe we were about to walk out of that sale without it!
