Credenza Love!

Well readers, sorry to keep you in suspense!
I found this beauty the Saturday before last at the theater on the third floor where we keep all the props. It was buried somewhere in this mess...
That Saturday, friend Bryson was working on his Eagle Scout Project on the third floor building 15 sets of shelves for the  prop room and since I am no good with power tools, I decided to "clean house" and straighten up on the other end of the third floor by the elevator. This credenza is one of those finds I've been hunting up forever but never could find, and in this pile I literally moved a board threw a chair off the massive pile and something fell revealing it!!!   I freaked to Patricia & Bryson and six visiting boy scouts about it haha. I went down and got my boss to come look at it and inquire if he'd want to sell it. Well a week and $20  later it was mine!
In fact the moment I laid eyes on the credenza I knew EXACTLY where it was going to go... (assuming at the time I could get it) I've been messing and switching furniture on that wall for a few months now and haven't found anything I liked/worked for what I wanted... until this came into the picture!
What a perfect fit in that spot, replacing the small side table along with the telephone table too. It has the cabinets where you can hide things, its just the right height to sit on for additional seating when we have parties and its the perfect height for the couch!!! It meets all of my qualifications and then some, its a "Lane" furniture piece and is built out of solid mahogany and matches the headboards (which are also Lane brand) on the other side of the room.

Can I pick em' or what?! I'm so happy with the new addition, so worth the $20 it looks like it was just meant to go there!

Whenever I find something marked Lane I buy it--it's just some of the best furniture! It looks fabuloso where you put it.

Good job Mick! I'm glad you rescued it from a life of storage. It looks like it was meant to be at the Casablanca!
