I couldn't resist. I had to go back and buy the shelf unit mentioned below. I'm still not positive about using it in the kitchen, but I loved the piece so much that I decided I would find a place for it somewhere! So if the measurements prove it to be a match then tomm. holds a new adventure. I have to figure out how to remove a kitchen cupboard from the wall. Then I need to paint the wall behind it. I have a lovely soft mocha picked out for repainting the kitchen and I may as well do it while the cupboard is removed. Then I have to figure out how to rehang this shelf unit securely enough so that it can bear the weight of all my favorite pottery and china it will display. The last thing I want is it to coming crashing down in the middle of the night with all my favorite pieces in it!
So...here's the new, old piece.
As long as I'm sharing pics, this is a darling children's print from the 30s that I found at the same antique store and listed on Ebay yesterday. It reminds me of Hummels. :)
