take them home!
Mom, this post is for you! xoxo
A few weeks ago, we were on the way home from grocery shopping when we saw a tag sale sign, so of course we stopped. Fortunately we had the truck, because we found two nice pine cabinets for $35. They were designed to be a/v cabinets. We are using one as a stereo cabinet, and one fits in this squirrely little space in our bathroom. We’ve been wanting a linen cabinet that would fit there for ages, and we had finally given up. Someday I hope the vent stack will be moved, but until we are ready to gut this bathroom, I am trying to ignore the ugliness.
Last weekend, we stumbled upon a little antique shop that was closing, and we found this fabulous old cupboard, which had been rescued from an old sugar shack, marked down. It was love at first sight for me. I instantly could see this cupboard filled with jar upon jar of home canned goods and less frequently used kitchenware. I can hardly wait to get it situated and filled with goodies.
PS: If any of my knowledgeable readers have suggestions for preserving the paint, which is crazed and chipping in some areas, I’d love to hear them!
