I had the perfect Valentine's date. I went antiquing with my husband!
Shane and I both love to go to antique stores and auctions.
Many times we are looking for something with a purpose and we enjoy the hunt.
I also enjoy the bargaining process.
We went shopping that day with the measurements wrote down that would fit the space we were shopping for.
Handy Hubby had his tape measure and we both had the vision in our heads.
We also had a price point that we would not go over.
We were searching for something to re-purpose into a coffee station.
This is what we got. It was labeled a Gentlemen's Cabinet.
It is very well made, featuring solid wood with dove tail joints.
The top has a scalloped back board.
It has two small drawers located at the top.
Two more drawers on the bottom.
It has a dark stain and shows some wear and tear.
It definitely needs a good cleaning.
The hardware seems to be in good shape.
It only needs a bit of carpentry work so the doors will close properly.
The cabinet is actually 2 inches taller than we need for the space (because of a light switch).
Handy Hubby will cut off the wheels, making it the right height and making it more stable.
I will be cleaning it up, doing a light sanding and painting.
I'm super excited about the storage possibilities!
