I Got It!

Well I did not win the lottery last night....bummers. But when I woke up this morning I headed back up to that antique mall when it opened. I was pretty sure I was going to buy that china cabinet at that point. But I just wanted to make sure that I loved it the way I loved it the day before. Well I seen a few more nicks on it then I did yesterday. But I still was pretty sure I wanted to get it. So I paid for it and called up my hubby. He and one of his pals were able to leave work for about an hour and met me up at the antique mall. My husband's friend has a pick up truck. So after I paid....$420 (YIKES I could barely type that!!!!), my hubby and his friend loaded it up in the back of the pick up wrapped in old quilts. Then he was kind enough to help carry it into our home where I wanted it placed. Which is in my home office.
So here is a picture of it. I still have to wash it down and then oil it up. After that dries I'll be able to set some things inside. I'll definitely take a picture of it when I have it all cleaned and polished up with some things in it.
Can't you see how I fell in love with this china cabinet? I just think it's so beautiful. Okay now I have to go back to start saving my money again, lol!
There was a name plate inside the drawer that said Brickwede. I asked the lady at the antique mall and she said that this was probably bought from an estate sale from the dealer. There is no other history on the china cabinet. So where it came form or who it belonged to, I have no idea. I can't believe it's sitting in my home office!!! =) Okay I got to go. I have my grocery list to make up and then I'll have to clean the china cabinet later. I was suppose to do my shopping yesterday but my mind got so caught up in this china cabinet. If you click on the photo, it will enlarge.
