Somewhere in Time Armoire August 25 2013, 0 Comments

I have been hunting on and off for an Armoire that had great lines AND would fit our flat screen TV. Most that I found on Kijiji were too small or plain.  Then one day on Facebook I saw an Armoire that Kathy from Karma Fine Furnishings had posted.  My first thought was "it's gonna be out of my budget"
