I had an amazingly productive morning at work. Almost too productive, to the point where by lunch I felt like I couldn't do another thing - to help clear my head I decided to take a walk.
I ended up at this very hit or miss thrift store across this street. Turns out, it was a good day. I've never been one of those people to really have an amazing score at a thrift or antique store. Well, today - I found this:
I've gone so long with such bad luck at thrift stores I'm questioning my own judgement a bit. I had a coworker look at it and she agreed, total treasure.
But, I'm insecure and I'd really love your opinion. On 2 things actually - did I find something good here? And is it really old or did someone recently make this. The hinges seem new-ish, but everything else seems old. There are NO markings on it anywhere, well except where someone has drawn in pencil in a few locations.
What do you think? Old or New? Trash or Treasure???
What do do with it now, when I first spotted it I thought I was going to paint it, but if it is really something old, it seems somehow "wrong" to paint it. Plus I love the metal pins on the door, I don't want to mess with those and they would be hell to cover and paint.
I really appreciate ANY and all comments on this one!!!
(Oh, and by the way - this piece, cost $40, did I pay too much?)
