A really cool find!


How happy we were when we found a vintage short wave radio cabinet (1950's) in the basement.  This was most likely there when the previous owner bought the house and with very little elbow grease this gorgeous honey blonde beauty is now the centerpiece of our family room.  If you notice the dial it has cities from around the world listed on it.  How cool!  Christmas came early for us on this one...
Stay tuned for photos of "the Big Lebowski," our ~8ft X 4ft section of a bowling alley that we bought and recycled from Buffalo ReUse to turn into our dining room table!   We also bought a vintage mantle there that will frame our fireplace and be part of book shelves on either side as well.
