Love You Some Broyhill Brasilia But Having a Hard Time Finding Yourself A China Cabinet? Mr. Modtomic Has Got You Covered. Drop By Fleur De Lis - Home Source And Check Out This Big Guy. Status: Available.
Strike while the Iron is hot...that's my motto. Just before ouf vacation I had the opportunity to pick up this lovely Broyhill Brasilia china cabinet, and even though I really didn't have the room for it and it's purchase would dip into our vacation money, I had to have it.
Ooooh...I thought long an hard about just bring this home because of all the china I do have to
display, but c'mon...a Pair of matching china cabinets? Not even I would dare. One must draw the
line somewhere. So this one sits at the shop in St. Charles awaiting adoption. Funny thing is, I didn't
have to move it very far as it came from another shop just down the street!
Just one week before our Summer Roadtrip was to commence, Momtomic shot me a text with a
photo of this and said it was available and wondered if I liked it. "YES!" Oh why oh why does it
happen like this. I really didn't need to be spending a chunk of cash just before loading up the car and
heading out of town for a couple of weeks, but a Mr. had to do what a Mr. had to do. So I dropped by
with a dolly, straps and moving blankets and moved this beauty up the street to our shop where it sits
now. Can you picture it: a guy dragging this china cabinet up the street from one shop to another
strapped to a dolly?!
It's not mint but it's a really good starting place for a light refinish. It's available as is or I can have
the finish issues taken care of if need be. It's not bad at all and with a little Howards it'd probably
look fine but I'll let the next owner make that decision. These pop up from time to time on craigslist
but if they are cheap they get snatched up SO fast. There was a china cab and side board on the list
just a few days ago along with some bedroom pieces from another maker of a similar style all for
$500 but I just didn't have the room of wear-with-all to bother making a play for it. The bedroom
pieces are still on the list but the Brasilia got snatched right up.
Also, don't forget that I have a recently refinished and rare Broyhill Brasilia drop leaf extension table,
a Super Rare Brasilia drop side harvest dining table and six "cathedral" dining chairs (one armchair)
to go with this china cabinet if one should be on the look out for a complete suite. I'm going to leave
this in the shop for a while longer but if it doesn't move I'll probably pull it and drop it off at Dan's for
a touch up and then put it at the Shag along with the Brasilia pieces I have there.
