For several days I have been working in my studio. Many years ago I bought this art deco cabinet or book case. I knew when I bought it the doors would not open. I had tried different keys to no avail. Different times in past years, I had tried to pry open the doors. Several months ago, I had made the decision to go get the cabinet from storage and take it straight to a locksmith. Right before I took the cabinet to my SUV, I tried one more time to open the beautiful leaded glass doors. My gosh, what a surprise, THE DOORS OPENED!
After this happened, I was thinking of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. She was told by Glinda, the good witch, "You've had the power all this time, my dear."
All those years we could have been enjoying this beautiful piece of furniture!
