Another Furniture Freebie Find!
I know I'm not usually a "two post per day" blogger but I forgot to share! On our way to Kris's first follow-up appointment a couple weeks ago we stumbled across a pile of rejected furniture & objects down by the trash in the garage. Included in the pile was a small free-standing cabinet with a drawer up top and two shelves and the drawer was stuck, not closing all the way for some reason. Kris took a look at it and tipped it to one side, and we heard something rolling around behind the drawer. My hand just barely fit and I pulled out a 5-container paint set. Drawer closed perfectly, problem solved. I wiped it down, inside and out with Clorox wipes and it was ready to go. I carried it to a few different spots in the living room until I settled on the short wall right outside the guest bathroom. The drawer is holding the extra kitchen towels and on the shelves I tucked away some extra sodas and a set of Chinese dishes for four, and matching Marilyn Monroe party plates and highball glasses that our friend Noel gave us for our wedding. I'm still determined to find some sort of bar cart with room for glasses but for now, at least, that gets them off the counter and out of the way when they're not being used. On top of it now are our business cards and a couple of knick-knacks that were also on the counter that desperately needed to be moved elsewhere. But I was mostly stoked because it was free and in perfect shape and it almost matches the color of the dark nightstands we have so if I change my mind eventually, it will go with out bedroom, as well. Happy Furniture Finds! Enjoy, Allie H.
