So Excited: Three Fabulous Pieces

Last week, Joe and I had the opportunity to buy some fabulous stuff, in fact several of my favorite pieces of the whole year so far. Just check out this vintage banker's cabinet:

It stands about 4-feet tall on metal legs with casters. We were told that the individual drawers held the tellers' counted cash for the start of each day. What a great storage piece!

Next is this wonderful 10-foot ZINC TOP worktable. We were told that it came out of a machine shop in Ohio; its patina is awesome and it would make a wonderful island, buffet or studio piece.

Last but not least is this all original 1920s kitchen hutch in terrific condition. It would be great for its intended purpose, but would also be sweet as a store display, in a craft room or in a child's bedroom.

The pictures don't do any of these hotties justice -- we were in the middle of our annual pre-winter studio cleaning, so everything was in a jumble. Just consider it live action! The hardest part was deciding which things to take where. Joe is headed to Midland tomorrow with the worktable and the hutch, in addition to a bunch of great industrial finds and smalls. I'm off to Chicago with a load of Christmas. The banker's cabinet is headed to next weekend's Kane. Check back next week to see what else we've got up our sleeves and have yourself a FABULOUS weekend until then. xo

The vintage bankers cabinet is the coolest. I could see it in my new studio, which is coming soon.
Have a great week!
