During the first half of the 20th century most homes had humidors in their living rooms. A homemaker usually placed one next to her husband's favorite chair, and smokers stored their tobacco and smoking accessories in the copper lined cabinet. The copper lining helped keep the tobacco fresh.
This particular cabinet is likely from the 1920's. It originally had a black marble top (you can see it in the last picture), but has since been removed. It is otherwise in excellent condition. A little clean up and some furniture polish further brought out its beauty. Nothing else needed for this unique item!
Collect things you love, that are authentic to you, and your house becomes your story.

I instantly fell in love with this antique table. Especially those legs! Honestly, I would have loved to merely clean it up and keep it stained, but unfortunately, the back panel of the table was completely split and the top was split as well. I soon realized it was going to take some major repair to get this table solid again.
I began by taking the table apart, which was not an easy task since the entire table was put together with dowel pins. Some of them were broken on the one side, which paved the way to taking it apart. Getting it back together required new dowel pins, wood glue, bondo and pipe vices. Not to mention lots of elbow grease!
Given the wood repair and bondo, I had no choice but to paint this beauty, but I opted to keep the top as rustic as possible to maintain some of the piece's original charm.
The end result? A new look for an old piece that can now be enjoyed for many more years to come!
This one-of-kind coffee table is truly a conversation piece. Just look at all those ornate details! It has been hand-painted in a beautiful soft gray and off white with a script French poem painted on top. The base has dark wax added to enhance the ornate beauty of the piece, and the top has a matte protective poly topcoat for added durability. The curves, carvings and ornamental design of this beauty are second to none.
Dimensions: 39” wide x 17.5” tall x 21” deep
See the before pics below...this one took some elbow grease!

A new look for an old piece. This wardrobe had good bones but needed a facelift to really make it shine.
It's been refinished inside and out. It now has a more modern look while still maintaining its vintage charm.
This solid wood table features carved shapely bevel edge legs, a finial center post, and multi-bevel edge top with ornate moldings. The top has been refinished and stained in a deep java color and the base has been painted in a sophisticated hue of yellow-green that picks up other colors well and changes character accordingly. Subtle highlights and lowlights give the base added dimension, and the entire piece has been poly coated for added durability.
Sophisticated and elegant, this would make a great table in an entry way, parlor, sitting room or just a corner to hold a beautiful floral display.
Dimensions: 32.5” wide x 28” high x 23.5” deep.
