Furniture find with an accent

This morning, Sarah and I discovered two things:

  1. Saturday does in fact start before 8am.
  2. This old English hall wardrobe.

Getting up early works for birds hunting worms, so we figured the same strategy might work for poor kids searching for bedroom storage on the cheap. Kind of like the Ethan Allen cabinet we recently found and painted.

When our usual hot spots turned us down cold, we stepped into a consignment shop in Frisco. That’s where we spotted this ol’ chap standing in a corner.

It’s a hardwood English wardrobe most likely from the 1920’s – 1950’s. It’s called a “hall” wardrobe because at just over 5 ft. tall and 18 in. deep, it’s diminutive size is well-suited for an entryway or hallway. Or, in our case, it’s perfect scale for our cozy apartment.

And after a little discussion with the proprietor, we ended up with a petit $84 price tag to match.

Our original plan was to find something we could paint or refinish. But, with it’s beautiful hardwood inlays, scroll work and quaint hardware, we find the English accents charming, indeed!
