I found this cabinet sitting on the side of the rode with a few assorted pieces of junk. It was displayed junk so I knew it wasn’t FREE.
I LOVE FREE JUNK!
This cabinet, however, cost me $10. I know I got ripped off…isn’t that what you were thinking? Just trust me…a little TLC and you’ll be offering me money for this cabinet.
I made my husband go up and knock on the front door to find out how much this cabinet cost. He LOVES me. This cabinet came from South Jersey. We took a day trip to Cape May and came home with a gem (in the rough).
Isn’t it lovely? You’d pay $10 for this cabinet…wouldn’t you?
I got free spiders and inchworms and even a cricket. It chirped all the way home to Long Island.
I don’t really know exactly what I saw in this cabinet, but it spoke to me.
It said, “Please take me home you poor, blind fool. Spend way too much time cleaning, sanding, and painting me and then let me clutter you home for the next 20 years.”
So I said, “Ok.”
A little paint, a little elbow grease and Whala!
Don’t you love this color? It’s Convington Blue and I really like it. My only problem – the drawers wouldn’t fit back in after I painted it. Oh, no, a great cabinet with no drawers…that’s not so great anymore. By the way, I pronounce drawers like “draws”. That’s what happens when you grow-up in NY. Never thought it was odd, but SOME people have a problem with it.
My husband’s advice, “Let it sit and dry out.”
Like that’s gonna make my drawers fit…I don’t think so. However, I didn’t have any better ideas at the moment, so I acquiesced.
It worked! I don’t like to admit I was wrong, but I guess the proof is in the picture. Now I need hardware. My projects never end.
A big THANK YOU to all who rated me on MomBlogs! Also, thank you Texas Woman for teaching me how to make this great signature. I feel important now.
It’s a happy day.
