Fine Furnishing

A couple of posts ago I wrote about Janine and I going to Luckett's on a shopping outing.  At Luckett's, they have several outbuildings, open to the elements except for three walls and a roof.   The above cubby piece was in one of these outbuildings and I was, of course, drawn to it immediately because of the colors and storage potential.  I decided not to get it that day -no regrets.
The next week I had to drive through there on my way and back to drop off art for a home sale, Chick's Picks, that I participate in.  On the way I thought about the piece and let myself stew.  Obviously, on the way back I stopped and it was still there.  By then I'd had a few intense days in my work room, made more challenging because of not being organized enough even though I had put in a large piece which helped a lot recently.   So, here it is in all its glory.  It took me about 30 minutes to fill it up but now my studio is so much more workable.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention that the final decision was based on the fact that it had been marked down 50% since I'd seen it the week before!!!
