I happened to be over in the Build-It-Green neighborhood of Brooklyn last week (Gowanus) and stopped by to see what was happening there. Specifically, I was wondering if they had any kitchen cabinet possibilities, since we were still in the market after our last heart-breaking venture at Built-It Green, when we hesitated on cabinets and they were sold before we could make up our minds. This time I was NOT going to make the same mistake!
I sent this sequence of lousy photos to John when I found a set of antique pine bead-board-and-glass cabinets that had been salvaged from a hunting mansion in Connecticut on the Long Island Sound.
10 minutes later, we were the proud owner of these four cabinets, and two antique light fixtures to boot!
The good news: The light fixtures were on super sale (yes-- things can get cheaper at BIGNYC!) and the big fixture was a whopping $50.00 (almost 54" long) and the smaller globey light was only $30.00.
WHAAA----AAATTT????? According to their price tags, they were $750.00 and $495.00 originally, so I'm pretty chuffed with my savings, I'm not gonna lie.
