I was lucky enough to find this Italian curio cabinet from a couple that was downsizing because they were moving. They said that this cabinet was custom made from Italy when they had visited on a trip and had it delivered to Germany. Their loss, my gain because I was absolutely enamored when I saw the Baroque style cabinet.
Now when I looked on FB, I had noticed that this cabinet had been available for weeks! And the price had even gone down. Someone had even stated that they were taking it, but following the conversation, I didn't see a SOLD comment so I had decided to express interest.
Lo and behold, it was indeed available and for a decent price! I surely thought, this would be wayyy more expensive and I'm sure it retails at much more.
I was so excited, but as with most furniture purchases I am interested in, there is always the question of "How am I going to get it to my house?" I don't own a truck, just a small SUV which is great for most of my flea excursions but not a 6 ft. tall cabinet. So kind of giving up, I asked if they could deliver, not expecting a "yes" based on past experiences. But to my surprise they did say "yes."
They just had to find someone with a truck as well...But a few days later, I came home from work and it was there! Brandon had off from work and he waited for the cabinet and even filled it with some of our things that we didn't really have a good place for like our wedding photos, nick nacks, and the black and clear crystal from Iraq.
Below you can see the detail of the crackle paint and the beautiful pastel colors of pink, green, and blue accented with gold!
The beautiful key to lock the cabinet.
Inside you can see the detail of the gold etching and rope cording that aligns the inside.
I'm so happy to find this FB score! The only thing that I am a little unsure about is the bright yellow color of the background. I think it's kind of distracting and was thinking about painting it an off white color (even Brandon mentioned something about the color).
So what do you all think? Should I keep the yellow background color or would it benefit from a paint job?
Also, this is the last day for my GFC follows to move my blog to BLOGLOVIN. New followers can also find me on Bloglovin. It's a great way to read all your blogs in one place!
