    It’s so big that from the back it looks like a wall with a window!! It’s beautiful!!

    • Diana Sharp says:

      Love cabinet the way it is but can’t wait to see what you two can do with it. That window in the back would be beautiful if you could frame it with led lights.. Just my thoughts. LoL! Have fun ladies.

  3. Debbie says:

  5. Donnette Plant says:

    It is beautiful and I think the open area for the once fan adds to the story and history of the cabinet. ❤️

  6. Michele Mozzetti says:

    Such a beautiful piece!! I hope you can get it delivered soon. You have so many awesome collections. Do you think you’ll start a new collection of some kind?

  7. Ann says:

    OMG. I can’t love this enough. Can’t wait to see it finished, in place, and filled with your pretties. So fun!!!

  8. Julie says:

    That’s a monster!!! Maybe the slats were to keep the warm baked goods from sweating on the bottom. Can’t wait to see the rejuvenation!

  9. Kara says:

    It will be absolutely beautiful when y’all finish it! So exciting!

  10. Judi says:

    That hole in the cabinet would be the perfect spot for one of your atainglass windows.

  11. Sue bargetto says:

    The whole in the back is part of it history. I would leave it showing a bit when you display you treasure so people will ask you why it’s there. You can then tell it story.
    So so cool!

  12. Miss Mill Eli says:

    I was thinking the back was framed out for a window that was already on their wall so that a cabinet that large would have some light in it. Speaking of light, you could easily install some “under cabinet” lighting in it. I did in mine and it made a huge difference. I got the puck lights (plug-in, warm tone) on Amazon and used see through clear clips to hide the wires behind the frames of my cabinet. The difference is stunning and it gives that space a cozy feel at night. You and Deb would love it.

  13. G says:

    Have you ever heard, When God closes a door he opens a window? How about an antique window in that spot? Whatever you choose that big ole cabinet was meant to be!! Gorgeous..cannot wait to see what you create!!!

  14. Jeanne says:

    I can’t wait for this to be in your home and see what you do with it! Wouldn’t it be great if one of your stained glass windows fit over that opening? 🤩

  15. Wow! What a great find. I can’t wait to see how it turns out in your home. Thank you for sharing the story behind it, or what you know so far! Hopefully, someone will know more about it for you.

  18. Susan says:

    One of your Best finds yet!! Looking forward to seeing it all decked out! Perfect spot for this huge classic find 🤩🤩

  19. Chris says:

    What a beautiful beast of a cabinet. I DM’d you about the Fort Wayne doll hospitals that I remember…not sure if you’ll see it. There were 2… one on Wayne Street owned by, if I remember correctly, Eloise Patterson, and one on West Berry (Barry?) that I think was owned by a Mrs Kiefer. But it’s so long ago, I can’t remember for sure. Would think some digging in the old directories at the Allen County Library might have some info. That library has one of the biggest and best genealogy/ancestry/history archives in the US

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Oh thank you. I need to check it out because I’m so interested in the history of this piece.

  20. jaz says:

    the slats we there so when warm baked goods were placed in it they could cool off without getting soggy. the hole was probably originally covered in screen as a vent to let warm air escape from the baked goods placed in it.

  21. Patty Russell says:

    Love love love

  22. Pam says:

    How very cool that this unique piece has ended up with someone who will love it! Cannot wait to see it in your dining room!

  23. Bethany dick says:

    Great piece, I had commented on IG, the doll hospital was owned by a lady named Eloise Patterson. she had a beautiful place that was the doll hospital down on west wayne street in the 200 block. I remember the cabinet housed all sorts of dolls and pieces. Had my madame Alexander doll repaired a few times a little girl. What a great piece of history to have. Can’t wait to see you’ put all the love in it!♥️

  24. Ann says:

    Love love love.
    Can’t wait to hear & see more about it.
    What about inserting a mirror in that open panel area in the back!!!

  25. Jill says:

    This is STUNNING!!!! I cannot wait to see it all finished once you two work your magic! You two are amazing at transforming pieces!!!

  26. Deborah MacKenzie says:

    It’s extremely fabuloso! I can’t wait to see it in place and full of treasures.

  27. Carol says:

    Perhaps the slanted shelves would show off the baked goods for better viewing.
    Your cabinet is gorgeous…great find.

  28. Kathy says:

    WOW! You two have managed to score some unbelievable pieces!
    I can’t wait to see what you do with it!

  29. Brenda Garrelts says:

    Are the wood slats similar to like be board, or are they individually placed?

  30. Ruey says:

    Such a gorgeous piece!
    I can’t wait to see both of you work your magic on it.❤️

  31. Pam Sego says:

    Do you know if painting it would decrease in value, like some items on Antiques Roadshow?

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      I think that totally depends on the use of the item. A collector is going to want an item in its original condition and the longer it stays in its original condition and in good condition the more it will be worth, but if someone is purchasing it for an aesthetic then painting it could increase its value in that category also. Painting something like this is always such a hard decision!!!

  32. Mary Newland says:

    Cant’ wait to see what you do with this. I’ve dying to know!

  33. Mary Newland says:

    “I’ve been dying to know” (typing too fast) LOL

  34. Kim says:

    Apparently late to the game on this cabinet! So exquisite! Absolutely, love it! My stepmother and Dad collected antique furniture but nothing as beautiful as this piece, in my opinion! Gorgeous!
