The Streisand collection( Julien's Auctions )
Streisand often builds the look of a room around a single object of her affection.
"I was doing a bathroom based on a lamp that had a matte black glass base, so I found this table with a marble top," she says of this Victorian-style library table with carved sphinxes and urns. "I was going to make that into the sink vanity and even had a backsplash made to fit the back. Then I found something better, so I never used it. The back piece cost $500 to have made, on top of $3,500 for the table, plus I paid to have it repainted. I don't know what they're selling it for, but someone is going to get a bargain."
(Psst, Barbra, it's valued at $600 to $800.)
And it sold for $812.50.
