This antique armoire has been in just about every room in my house over the last twenty years....until it finally was pushed into the garage. It was very sad because I remember falling love at one of my very first auctions and having to have this piece. We converted it with glass shelves inside and on the side panels and used it as a display cabinet for collections. It eventually made it's way to the store and into the workroom.....sitting there for probably two months. I found it very uninspiring and it just wouldn't "talk" to me.....the love affair was definitely over. Somehow it started to whisper little things to me and it became a shabby white.....sitting like that for another four weeks. It then started to speak a little louder and I lined it with antique sheet music and used chicken wire on the sides for some textural interest. It was then the armoire really started to sing....... somehow the baby items and old dolls found their way onto the shelves for a really neat shadow box effect......I'm glad I didn't push it to the curb any of those times I thought it had no hope.........I'm in love again.
