my special cabinet

.... so you've seen how the entrance looks... and you've seen how it looks as soon as I open the door for you...
Now I'm showing you my priced possession!! *smiles*
My hubby (and I)... love music.... He loves to collect CDs... only problem is.. I never had a good storage space.. Yes!! the modern CD racks... don't turn me on.. *grins*... I'd stop hubby from buying CDs... If he went to the counter with 10... I'd coax him into buying one... *smiles* .. He is nice like that..!! on the rare occassions..!! *smiles*
And when I saw this gorgeous piece... at Pinkys... I simply had to bring it home... *sigh*
The Pinky's dude even put a few extra shelves for me... which helped me convert this into a CD rack... I got it home.. without even thinking of where to place it... Then one weekend.. we shuffled... re-arranged... re-organised.... literally moved everything around... to make a home for this.. It someone didn't fit in the main living room.... *sigh*
So now.. I have it.. right at the entrance of the house... Yes!! As soon as you walk in... People often wonder why I have such a gorgeous shoe rack... but I don't keep shoes at the entrance of my home.. I simply cant do that!!
So do you like my new favourite ??? What if there were peacocks on it.. instead of horses.. *sigh*.. Now I'm asking for too much... *smiles*
I'm linking in to these fabulous blog parties!!

  2. It is beautiful Patty! The horses look good and the colour is just perfect. If you want peacocks , maybe you can paint them on the wall behind the cabinet :)

  8. Absolutely gorgeous, Patty. I love re-purposing. When you get the peacocks, buy that and put them back to back as a room divider perhaps? This one is very pretty.

  9. Very ethnic... Are those floral designs etched into the wood or painted ? You sure have an eye for the good things around !

  14. Wow! Love your blog, although first time commenting. That's a beautiful entrace. I love the cd thingy although I feel it's so pretty that you should take away all those little thingys on top so that it doesn't compete with the main attraction. maybe just the plant on top? Love your find! Oh, and you have one beauuutiful home!


    Cheers,

    Ann

  17. Great find. It is beautiful.

    You seem to be a peacock fan :) I tried to fit in peacocks and it surely looked more beautiful. But the horses give it a different touch. Another trip to Pinkys and may be you'll find a peacock-y version ;)
