look what i got! (part 1)

One of my new favorite things that I picked up last week at The Painted Lady.

I've been looking for a tall, narrow cabinet for the past year or so, and as soon as I saw this vintage, metal black-and-white locker cabinet I knew it was the one! It holds tons of stuff... like extra glasses, recipe binders, and kitchen linens, and is totally one-of-a-kind. How's that for lovely yet practical?

Needless to say, I love love love.

I think I'd go crazy at this Painted Lady found some great finds! I love this locker especially!

Kristin said...

Thanks, Dionne - I knew you'd like it!

And Mary... Painted Lady is a dangerous place. I have yet to walk in and walk back out with nothing in my arms. She has fabulous taste and scours flea markets/antique shops/estate sales all around the area for goodies. Lucky us!

wow this is a fabulous piece! if only i could convince my boyfriend that we need something identical in our place!

Kristin said...

Emily - you can convince him by selling all of the extra storage space that you'll have with something like this... the trick is to show the practical side!
