So, I was at the thrift the other day. NOT really looking for anything. Just killing time with my sis. We were ready to leave and she suggested that we go to the outside yard and see if there is anything. Look what I found!!!
She is a beautiful armoire/pantry/entertainment center. I had big plans I tell ya, big plans!!
I have NO cupboard space in my kitchen. ALL of my food was shoved in one cupboard and the top shelf of my lazy susan! It stressed me out just looking for the ingredients to cook!! My husband said that he would NOT build me a pantry without redoing the entire kitchen.
So, since I didn't have a couple extra grand just hanging out, I had to take matters into my own hands. (why that much $ you ask, well we would have to move the dishwasher, redo the floor not to mention all the cosmetic stuff I want done anyway-that I am going to do this fall :)
So-I found this for $20 bucks a shoved her in my van and brought her home.
I thought that this was a pre-fab piece, but upon closer inspection-she was custom.
Can I get a WOOT WOOT!!
Since I am so inpatient, I stopped at Lowe's on the way home and got me some paint and supplies. Here she is after the first coat. Isn't she pretty? I was GiDDY with excitement!!
Look how big it is! I know can see my food and know what I have. Guess no more excuses for not cooking dinner. This little addition cleared out 2 whole cupboards!! I don't even know what to do with myself!!
