Anyway, my friend Holly and I went to an auction preview of a bi-annual antique auction being held this weekend. I'm really disappointed I didn't win the lottery (spoiler alert!), because in addition to my new seating, I would have hit this auction hard.
Holly and I both loved this beautiful corner cabinet. I'm not a huge fan of overly distressed pieces, but when it happens naturally over 200 years of use? Yes, please!
This one is huge- about 9 feet tall. I kept staring at it in wonderment. My 1978 scaled ceilings wouldn't work, but I could just imagine the antebellum home it came from.
Oh, and all the silver? I felt like I was in Ali Baba's cave of treasure.
I could stuff my chest of drawers(es) full of booty. Too bad my bank account is in no condition to be plundered.
That huntboard, though. . . sigh.
So tell me- new or old for you?
I would be happy if all my case goods were antiques (of the Southern primitive or Southern type- nothing fancy for me), and my upholstery new(ish).
Note- if anyone wants to purchase that huntboard or anything else pictured, you can bid online. The link is at the top of the page. After your purchase, please e-mail me for my address. I will happily reimburse you for shipping. Hee.
