~Small Wooden Cabinet--Part One~

While looking over Craigslist one day I spied this vintage beauty:

It is a small wooden cabinet.  For some reason the arches and clean lines of the piece just grabbed me.  I knew it would be a beauty fixed up. It is perfect for the  Etsy Shop.

Inside there are 3 fixed shelves making it a small, enclosed bookshelf.  The entire piece is solid wood and sturdy.

It had the most amazing knob...

It is solid brass, heavy, and old!  Sadly, there is just the one knob. So I removed it and will use it for another project.

The cabinet was a fantastic price!  I emailed the owner at 11 o'clock at night and told her I would pay $5.00 more than the asking price if she would hold it for me til the next morning. {I would have payed even more for the piece--it was that cheap to begin with}.

The next day I picked it up and fell in love.

It is now painted deep, rich Aubusson blue {ASCP} and has some gorgeous Anthropologie knobs...

Check back soon to see the finished piece...
