The Black and Tan Dry Sink

You probably noticed the new piece of furniture on our Chewy post yesterday.    This in our new black and tan Colebrook dry sink.    Mom seems to really be hooked on the Hitchcock black and tan stuffs!

We can't have black and tan furniture without some black and tans on it!
There is one small problem though.   When it was delivered, the skeleton key that came with it to open the doors on the bottom didn't work.  Mom had to wait for the correct skeleton key to arrive.
In the meantime, she asked dad if he had skeleton keys hanging around~
He did - but none of them unlocked the door.
 Finally, the miracle key arrived!     
 Mom is a happy camper☺
Love ya lots♥


  1. it's beautiful and black&tan is the best combination ever... like your furs...
    I guessed it while reading, that not of the keys your daddy had is the right one... it happened to us with an old kitchen cabinet... my dad tried to make a key what fits... butt well... you know our diy-projects.... we use a cardbord piece now that the door can not get closed completely LOL

  2. I'm glad there weren't any skeletons hiding inside that cabinet!

  3. What lovely furniture and so unique. I love the Autumn colours and accessorites. Molly you did a great job of presenting it to us. Happy Wednesday. Hugs, Susie & Treacle xx

  4. I did notice it and thought it was gorgeous...we are very happy to know the back ground and what it is called, now we do Colebrook. It is a kind of arts and craft style right? I love the art on the doors and drawers and Of course
    it matches your AireGirl furs. And more storage too
    Hugs madi your bfff

  5. What a cool cabinet. Dad sure had lots of those keys that don't look like skeletons

  8. What gorgeous colors!! Glad they sent the right key!!

  9. I thought the idea of a skeleton key was that opened most anything. Your dad certainly had quite a collection. But we're glad you finally got the right one. We think it's great that your décor is based on the dogs...BOL!

  10. that is a beautiful cabinet! love that it matches your colors Molly

  11. Black and tan is the best, both for a cabinet (gorgeous!) and for a pup!

  12. Love the dry sink. We also have some Hitchcock around the house. I like the chairs best, because they get me close to the top of the dining room table. Teka

  13. We could have guessed that your Mom was attracted to black and tan stuff. It's lovely

  14. Was there something inside or was it empty? Love the Hitchcock piece. You are lucky you have a store near you. We only see Hitchcock pieces on Ebay. We love that they have small pieces.
    Thanks for being a friend
