Dutch Farmers' Cabinet

Yesterday while reading the Kom Achterom blog (, I saw Yolanda's cabinet that is very similar to this one that has been in our home for over 25 years. 

The story goes that our cabinet was left behind in the old farmhouse that my in-laws bought back in the 1960's. At that time, it was completely falling apart with one leg missing. The finish is also not original, but I never was interested in doing more than dusting and an occasional waxing.

As old and feeble as it is, it is still a charmer.
