Recently, my mother in law passed away. She had been at an assisted living apartment for several years, and had already sold many of her household items so there was not much furniture left to sell or divide.
My husband had always liked this cabinet, and wanted to make room for it. I had barrister bookcases in this corner, and have moved them somewhere else.
I wasn’t sure I would like the piece in our living room, but plan to use it as a curio cabinet or bookcase. As it turned out, I’m very pleased with how well the piece fit in our room. It is a perfect fit for this corner, and gives us lots of extra space. And, the cabinet is a sweet reminder of my mother in law!
This will be our first holiday season without her, and she will be missed! She died one day before her 90th birthday! We are thankful that she did not suffer for long, and was able to stay in her small assisted living apartment rather than go to the nursing home.
