I have been looking for a side board/buffet for a while now. Our new (but really old) kitchen does not have as much storage as our old house. So I still have a lot of dishes, linens etc. in boxes taking up a lot of room in my bedroom closet.
Last week the girls and I were headed to town and I spotted this little number on the side of the road. $35 and she can be yours! ohhhh awwww. I had to have it. Would she fit in my van. Could I even lift it? We stopped in and after paying the cash (I had EXACTLY $35 -wow is that a sign or what!) and talking to the nicest grandma and her two grandchildren I made arrangements to have my husband come back later and pick it up. Hmmm, now to tell him. Luckily he was busy at work and could only talk for a brief minute-I told him what I had done, where to pick it up, said it was already paid for and hung up on him before he could even get a word in! When he arrived home later with it (after giving me a bit of a hairy eyeball) he said "not bad, better than most of the crap you find on the side of the road. And for $35-pretty good deal!" Oh that husband of mine, such a good sport...........
Now what color to paint it?
I actually like the handles, but it is missing a few as you can see. So I may keep three of them for the large middle drawers and find new ones for the side drawers.
