Perfect! I love things like that. It's trying to find where to put it that's become a problem. I recently saw an old set of drawers I would have loved to have, but couldn't think of anywhere in my studio they could go.

Amy said...

There comes a time when you have to stick to your guns ....

Louise said...

haha! mine would have said the same!

Ruth said...

I shall forward to seeing it once you've found a home for it and possibly given it a make over!

Barbara Eads said...

Lovely! Are you putting it in your scrapbook room? What's inside?

Sheena said...

Love the look of this... where you gonna put it & can we see inside :D

scrappyjacky said...

That's more or less the words that would have been said in my house....they just can't understand why I love 'junk'.

Carmen said...

Ohhh - I love it! :D

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

A lovely find. Definitely worth salvaging. I fear my family and I have very definitions of the word "junk"!

Jane said...

I'm with you, a must have!

KraftyKaren said...

How fab - what will you do with it?? Hope you will share in a future blog post

Nathalie said...

Seems to be a great find! I wonder what the B is for? The initial of the library? Would love to see what you do with it!

alexa said...

My Mum was forever salvaging things from the library :). It speaks of anther time ... Do let us know its final destination.

Melissa said...

What a fabulous treasure!!!

Abi said...

I love that phrase 'lovingly salvaged'. My mum would call it junk but I call it an opportunity. I can see why you wanted to save it. It's marvellous. Can't wait to see what you do with it Sian.

Mel said...

Haha this is a great find! I think as scrappers we find it hard to throw anything pretty away.

Deb @ PaperTurtle said...

Oooooh I love this...

Debbie Stember said...

i just want you to know, that even though I rarely comment I love every one of your posts.

debs14 said...

Oh yes, we definitely need before and after photos of this!

Karen said...

They obviously don't see the potential that we would in a magnificent find like that one.

Gail said...

It looks great! I'm looking forward to hearing what you're going to do with it. Keep it for first aid supplies or something to do with crafts?

Sian said...

First of all, Debbie Stember - thank you very much :)

I'm glad you like my cabinet. The inside has painted shelves, but I haven't decided what to put on them yet

Lizzie said...

That's very cool Sian. Re-purposed can often be the best stuff - it has history and character.

Sandie said...

I love things that have a history, I'm sure you will make good use of this cabinet.

Miriam said...

Oh I love it! Lovingly salvaged, exactly what I said when I rescued a pretty carton perfect for a texture on my Gelli prints today. Now if the wind had changed his eyes would have stayed that way!!

Sandra said...

This beautiful cabinet couldn't have gone to a better person

Missus Wookie said...

I have a nowhere as nice old first aid box, mine stored chocolate and such for years. The kids knew they weren't allowed in first aid boxes after all ;)

Maria Ontiveros said...

I'm just not starting to add things in my studio. But being very selective. What a great find.

Jo said...

Ha ha, that could have so easily have been said in my house about me :)

S said...

So now you are snatching fixtures out of libraries -- what's wrong with you? Only the books are meant to be borrowed!

Looking forward to seeing what this chest becomes in its new life at Sian's house...
