Linda @ Painted Whyte June 10, 2010

Every time i step into "my shop" - the living & dining room in my house. (i don't live there thank god- no room) i say to myself that i will NOT go on kijiji anymore... not even to just look!  But what happens as soon as i leave the stacked up unpainted furniture, i talk myself into just looking at kijiji or just stopping at a thrift store and once AGAIN something followed me home... honest it did!  I almost bought one a while back from kijiji but two sisters who were selling it didn't talk to each other apparently and the cabinet i thought i was picking up was already gone, i was so sad.  Soooo when i saw my new beauty i felt i HAD to take it home, i mean i would have bought it ages ago already so really i wasn't bringing anything home that wasn't expected right ha ha yes this is my attempt at justifying it... good excuse yes? no?  Anyway, here she is....my plan for her is some paint, some distressing, some chicken wire and a flat screen mounted above!

That cabinet is going to come up a treat!
I can so relate. I promised myself no more ebay for a while, but my curiosity got the better of me. I might miss out on the bargain of the century!
