The Industrial Cabinet Find

About two years ago I went to an auction
right down the street from my house.
Literally. Down.
At the bottom of the hill.
It is where I found an old wooden tool cubby or industrial unit with all kinds of drawers.
The thing that is all the rage right now.
It was too big to carry up the hill
so I went home and told the hubs
he needed to go pick it up.
When he came home with it he was
grumbling. Really grumbling about
why I had bought such an ugly old thing.

I said "I really think this is going to be a hit!"
More grumbling.

We decided to take out every other drawer to give it a neat open look, brought it to the booth and set it up.
In a matter of mere seconds we had three or four ladies in the antique mall all standing around looking at it.
Ooohing and ahhhhing.

 Especially the price.
We had put such a low price on it because he
had convinced me it was not that great.
Well, it sold right away.
Of course!
All I have left is one drawer.
I just sold the other one to a gal who is going to use it in her wedding to hold the cards they receive.
Would just love to see a photo of how she uses it!
Enjoy the day and remember if you have a hunch that something is going to be GREAT:
Go with it!

Ah yes, my hubby has done the very same thing to me so many times. Moral of this story, never listen to your husband, he's seldom right. LOL ;)
