Goodwill Hunted!

Have you ever been driving by Goodwill and just known if you didn't stop, you would miss something great? That happened to me yesterday. I only had about 15 minutes to spare, so I walked straight back to the furniture.
My heart started beating fast as I saw it.
I walked all around it.
I read the name on the back.
I read the price...
I took a couple of pictures...

Yeah, you see it, don't you? New Hampton Court Group by Drexel circa 1940.... Oh YEAH!

And the price you ask.... $37!
I know! NOT $370, but $37.

I went straight to the front and paid. The clerk asked if I needed to come back for it. Absolutely NOT! I will make it fit into my Xterra. I am not risking anyone getting this from me!

I am thinking I will make this my wine cabinet in the dining room. I want to add chalk paint (Chateau Grey and Country Grey). I also need to replace the back that was cut to fit a TV.
I can't wait  to get started!!!!

Make it a great day, or not, the choice is YOURS!
Love, Whyt
