New to us

Happy V Day to you all out there. I hope you have a very nice one. I certainly will...spending this day with my 10 to 12 year-old students is an experience like none other. Love is in the air, people!!!!

We were recently gifted with an armoire that has been in my husband's family for many, many years. I am very excited about it! My in-laws are starting a kitchen renovation project, so they decided to pass this one along or sell. Um, we'll take it!

This whole piece, which is huge, is all made of tongue-and-groove. So, the top piece you see holds it all together once it is assembled. We had a merry time trying to put it together! What I think is really neat about it? When my husband's great-grandparents moved, they moved all of their belongings down the Ohio River in a boat. So this piece went along, just unassembled.

Cool skeleton key...

As you can see, there is a LOT of storage. I am excited about this....but am fearful of it getting junky. I have a big problem with that in large storage pieces.

All of the hooks are there that they would use to store their cloto thes. I think all of them. is so good to be a 21st century girl!!

Small lined drawers at the bottom.

Pretty cool, huh?

I love keeping things like this in the family, you know? There's nothing in it yet, but I'm planning to clean out one of my dressers and put everything in there. I'm just so tickled to have it.

I know. You married me only because of my family's huge, old wood pieces.
