hurricane project

After a very long search for the perfect curio cabinet I found one on Craigslist. It is converted gun case so it isn't too decorative or fancy which is perfect! It is also the exact width for the space we had set aside for it which is amazing! So anyway with a huge storm just about to hit our city I decided to drive out, 45 minutes away to pick up our new addition. I made it back just before the winds and rain started and now I am planning on dressing it up a little bit and then filling it with as many of Richard's collections I can. One of the last remaining parts of our renovation and move in was figuring out what to do with his toy collection. I am so relieved and excited to start this project and I couldn't have a better day to do it. I am about to make some hot chocolate and start unpacking boxes. I will post and after shot once I get it all finished. Happy Saturday!

I think his toy collection would look fantastic in there. I have a similar looking piece of furniture and it is so nice to change what is in it from time to time. But if you have a collection it should look cool.
I really enjoy reading your blog,especially when you mention things to do in the city, as I live across the bay bridge.
