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.
There comes a time when you have to stick to your guns ....
haha! mine would have said the same!
I shall forward to seeing it once you've found a home for it and possibly given it a make over!
Lovely! Are you putting it in your scrapbook room? What's inside?
Love the look of this... where you gonna put it & can we see inside :D
That's more or less the words that would have been said in my house....they just can't understand why I love 'junk'.
Ohhh - I love it! :D
A lovely find. Definitely worth salvaging. I fear my family and I have very definitions of the word "junk"!
I'm with you, a must have!
How fab - what will you do with it?? Hope you will share in a future blog post
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!
My Mum was forever salvaging things from the library :). It speaks of anther time ... Do let us know its final destination.
What a fabulous treasure!!!
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.
Haha this is a great find! I think as scrappers we find it hard to throw anything pretty away.
Oooooh I love this...
i just want you to know, that even though I rarely comment I love every one of your posts.
Oh yes, we definitely need before and after photos of this!
They obviously don't see the potential that we would in a magnificent find like that one.
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?
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
That's very cool Sian. Re-purposed can often be the best stuff - it has history and character.
I love things that have a history, I'm sure you will make good use of this cabinet.
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!!
This beautiful cabinet couldn't have gone to a better person
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 ;)
I'm just not starting to add things in my studio. But being very selective. What a great find.Rinda
Ha ha, that could have so easily have been said in my house about me :)
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...
