Hello my Blogger friends!
Thought I might share my newest
treasure with all of you.
I wondered around the Estate sale
my usual favorites
(old quilts, vintage fabric, etc.).
Suddenly my attention was draw
toward this wood spice cabinet.
The price tag, $2.
My head started searching for ideas
of how/what can this be used for?
Surely, it would not be used for what
it was intented(spices)!
Oh look, some vintage hankies...I'll take 'em.
Wait, what's that I see?
Why it's an old wooden bobbin...I take that too!
Well, 20 minutes later, here I am,
standing in front of this spice cabinet.
I couldn't resist it's primitive charm.
I've got an idea!
The shelves on the inside could hold
spools of thread or craft paint.
Oh, the possibilities.
But 2 whole dollars. Do I dare?
I'll need to sand and paint it.
What color paint should I use?
Do I really need to start another project?
When I returned home with my
newly found treasures,
I noticed a makers mark and date
on the inside of the door.

Time to do a little research.
Turns out, these cabinets can be
somewhat valuble (over $100).
Maybe I'll just leave it in
the original condition for a while.
Have a Treasureful day!
