I didn't think I'd post again so soon but I just love this antique table that I bought last week and thought I would share it with you.
As you know, I'm trying to switch from Primitive Decor to Farmhouse Decor, or at least find a balance in between. I love both!!! I keep my eyes open regularly for farmhouse decor, old cabinets, etc., especially in white or something that I can paint. Cabinets aren't that easy to find in my price range, most are very expensive in this area. Last week I came across this cabinet on-line and thought it was wonderful. I went to see it and loved it immediately. I bought it for $20.00. What an amazing deal. I still need to wash it down but it definitely has that old farmhouse design I'm looking for.
I originally purchased it for the upstairs bathroom but it doesn't look like it's going to fit. I had hoped to place the antique medicine cabinet above it, I thought it would tie in perfectly with the table to provide that perfect farmhouse look. I had also considered placing my new antique mirror with it.
I took the photos outside since I'm not sure where I'm going to place it yet. Please ignore the grass, we're not getting much rain this year. The lawn has also gone through a tough transition this year - but that's a whole other story lol!
I love the ironstone pieces on it - it gives me that farmhouse feel that I love so much.
I love the old worn finish and the rusty old nails.
The lady I purchased it from told me that it was in the barn when they purchased their home. She is into new furnishings so just wanted to get rid of it. That works for me!! She was told by her realtor that it is an old washstand. I'm not sure if I agree. Does anyone know what it actually is? I was wondering if it had maybe been an old work table for a farmhouse kitchen or possibly a desk. I just don't know. Send me your thoughts, I'd love to hear your from you.
Thanks for stopping by!!!!
