I went to a thrift store and couldn't believe it when I saw this piece and I saw the price. This wonderful old antique pine armoire with the original hardware was 179.00!!! It had been marked at 499.00, then slashed to 399.00, then 299.00 and finally I found it at 179.00! I live in an old Queen Ann Victorian house which has almost no closets and the ones I have are tiny. I have large armoires in all of my bedrooms so I know what these pieces cost. I was shocked to find one this cheap. Cool...more room to store stuff!
It fit perfectly into the Blog Tech's old room. I topped it with a bunch of my thrift shop baskets.
While I was in his room I thought I would show you a couple of custom pieces I had made years ago. If you remember the howling coyotes table from back in the 80's, it was done by a guy named David Ross. His shop was in Santa Fe. It might still be there. When my kids were small, we spent a lot of time in New Mexico. I had my first Chow Chow Freddy back then. I gave David pictures of Freddy and asked him to make me 2 chairs and a set of library steps for the Blog Tech to use in his room. He has very high shelves in there! Click to see the steps better. Freddy is sitting on giant bones. This piece is so heavy I can hardly move it.
Here is one of the chairs he made with Freddy looking at a lady bug. The other chair has her staring at a bone.
I also had a small stepping stool made with my cats images.
CATsup is the dark cat and Mischief is the light one. CATsup bought the farm a while back but Misch is still kicking at the Blog Techs house since Teddy tried to eat her. Misch is 20 years old now.
Little kitty foot prints on the steps.
