Kitchen Cabinet & Lucas Got His Deer

I found this cabinet at the indoor flea market that I used to rent a booth at & sell primitives. Back in September I saw it for the first time & fell in love with it. The tag on it read not for sale. I visited again in October & the cabinet was still there with the not for sale tag on it. Oh how I wished I could buy it so many times. I decided to refinish the three wood pieces I had in the shop instead. I started to remove the paint & long story short it was just not going to happen. This past week I visited the flea market again. It was now for sale. The price was more than I would pay. After talking to a clerk I went home without it. Oh how I wanted it. After two phone calls to inquire if the vendor would come down in price I was told a percentage off. I went to pick it up Sunday only to be told that the piece had the vendors husbands code on it & she would not give the percentage off. I left disappointed. Well I went back on Monday & asked if I could see the doors that were not on it. Only two of the doors could be found & the vendors wife was called to come look for them. It was worth the wait. After about an hour & her not finding the top doors she offered me a price I could not turn down. So home it came with the boys & I. My canned veggies & dry goods now have a new home where I can see & reach them easily. Just what I wanted.

Lucas only had one day he could hunt but he had a deer early the first day. Back to work & school he went. We enjoyed our first meal from the hunt tonight. Seasoned tenderloin mashed taters with gravy along with sweet peas & baby carrots.

Blessings Til Next Time!


  1. Woo Hoo!!! Beautiful cabinet Lara! And who cares about the doors? I would have wanted them off anyway to display your wonderful canned goods.... And Woo Hoo again for Lucas! Way to go! What an awesome way to use your time wisely, hey?? Good for him....Our season ended this past Sunday - my hubby's not much of a hunter; my son loves to - but couldn't with his knee the past few years (and work....) so we've been missing the fresh venison....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  2. Awwww the worth of patience!! Yours was well worth it..The cupboard is awesome and looks so pretty with all your canned good displayed on it..

    Congrats are in order for Lucas on his deer..You'll all enjoy his catch long into winter..

    Have a great week!!


  3. Way to go. I am so glad you never gave up and got what you wanted. It is a lovely piece. I too visit a shop with booths and fell in love with a black corner cabinet. Not for sale though just display. Every time I go in there I check. They called the vendor and they said they would not sell it. Darn it. -Steph-

  4. So happy you got the cupboard, it's wonderful. Congratulations to Lucas, that's a nice one! Hope your entire season is full of blessings!

  5. Love that cabinet! So happy to hear you were able to get it! Your jars look lovely in it!
    Have a wonderful day!


  6. Well, your perserverance paid off didn't it. Good for you sweetie. It looks wonderful. I love it myself so I could imagine how much you really wanted it.
    He's a good lookin' hunter that's for sure. You've got another provider for you there for as long as he stays home with mom :-)

  7. Glad you got your cupboard! I love it with the doors off too. The canning jars look beautiful sitting inside!
