Things really do come in threes, don't they? My July finds are all different but have storage & display possibilities in common.
...with apologies for the down 'n dirty garage snapshots...
1. Just in, this country cupboard. When I saw a photo of it I knew that it would be the perfect display unit for our "creepy corner" at Junk Bonanza. Since getting it home yesterday I've removed the solid doors and hit it with the sandpaper to expose a bit of the white paint underneath. Soon I'll cover the toile wallpaper with something more suitable for our use.
This piece comes with an interesting bit of trivia for the Packer fans among us. The gal I bought it from is the granddaughter of Lisle Blackbourn, coach of Green Bay Packers from 1954-1957. He drafted Bart Starr, Paul Hornung and Jerry Kramer, among others. This cabinet was from the farmhouse that Lisle grew up in.
2. Two nights ago, this great cubby unit called for me to come and get it.
The brass tags are original and I love the years of use that are visible in each section.
3. This old survivor. The lower section is really rough and the back has been reinforced with chipboard. I'm pondering just cutting the lower part off so that the drawers can be used on a table; would that be dumb?
Kane County Flea Market this weekend. See you there?
