Occasionally I see pictures for an upcoming auction and I get excited.
Rarely do I get as jump up and down, heart racing, "gotta win that" as I did when I spied these last week.
Good grief. I've only seen them in magazines. I actually thought there was just one so imagine how my heart raced yet again when we took a walk through the furniture before bidding began.
I was a nervous wreck wondering if I could get them.
Oh thank you junque gods.
They put them together as a lot and my husband came up on top.
The beauty of two?
I can sell one and keep one. Guilt free.
So I've cleaned them up and spent Monday doing the "Musical Furniture" dance.
This was the shelving we had in the family room. I have been bored beyond belief with this set of shelves although they are most cool. Belonged to a family member who bought them in the 60's. You can build them as high or as short as you like. Super useful.
Here we are now. I brought down a chair from the bedroom to replace the groovy aqua chair which is ever so sadly showing its guts. Vintage vinyl stored for years in a garage by previous owners tends to crack and split at the seams. Sad, so sad. It will now hide in the bedroom until I win the lottery and can afford to have it recovered in leather.
Most items fit back. This is one of those "live with who you are" pieces. We keep out books and junque that show who we are and what interests us. Why yes, those are Harry Potter books. That series defines my son and was a major part of our lives (nope, not dorky, not dorky at all).
What happened to the original shelving unit? It's hanging out in the front room hoping to find a new life/use somewhere. Future uncertain!
The other baker's rack is chillin' in the garage. It will debut at the Vintage Marketplace full of fun and fabulous junque!
