I have been enjoying spending time with my kids while they were on Christmas break, so I haven’t been up to my normal amount of projects. I did however start working on this cabinet tonight.
I picked it up a few weeks ago at my favorite thrift store, Faith Farm, for $25. My husband doesn’t think it’s my style and wanted to know why I bought such a simple cabinet. I kind of like how simple it is. The paint job on it was old, and crackled and pitted, so I sanded it down, with one of my Christmas presents from the hubs…
But I might be changing them if I find something that will work better. Or I could just clean them up, give them a nice coat of paint and call it a day. What do you think – keep them or get new ones?
I’ve also been trying to sell our old (well, not old really) couch so the new couch can take its place. It might be a while before I can re-upholster the orange beast of a couch, but it is definitely on my short list of things to do. Can anyone else see the potential here?
It weighs a ton, is solidly constructed and it’s got great lines. Not to mention that it was only $19! I know its hard to see past the color. It’s a little overwhelming in person too. In fact, I just asked my son to take his book off of it so I could take a picture for this post, and he asked if I would be posting the “after” pic soon, because it’s horrible! I love how honest kids are
Sorry I have no completed projects to show, but I will be painting the cabinet tomorrow, and trying a new recipe for Tasty Tuesday. I know I’ve been slacking on those posts. Sorry!
So, what are your plans for this week?
Thanks for stopping by!
