One of the biggest reasons I wanted to go to an auction was to find a cabinet I could transform into my own creation…..and store candles (which I LOVE) and still have space for overnight guests to have a spot of their own. Our beautiful grandkids enjoy coming over and opening “their” drawers to see the goodies we have been gathering for them and their special visit. Our daughter can find a spot in her casa for the 5 drawer chest she needs more than us that this cabinet will replace. I am trying to decide what Annie Sloan chalk paint colors will work best…..am thinking the inside should be a different color….because shouldn’t a guest room hold a piece of furniture that is fun, funky AND pretty? The lower section has 2 shelves….so those will become the grandkid shelves….I removed the shelves from the upper cabinet so we can begin painting. We paid $135 for this at Voigt Auction House in San Antonio. They were featuring items from a dealer in Sweden…..so it will be fun to add that it’s “from Sweden”….when we are done. Will update you when it’s finished!
Last night I was able to talk David into going with me to Voigt Auction….an auction house in San Antonio off Blanco Road that has a live auction every Tuesday at 7. I was on the search for a cabinet that will hold candles, extras and maybe have a few empty drawers for overnight visitors….and the first item I had to have was an authentic camel saddle….how can a Texas girl resist? It even has a bell….
