FYI--8 weeks after back surgery, while wearing heels, DO NOT (under any circumstances), pick up large pieces of furniture off the side of the road and lift them into your van alone.
Driving home from church on Sunday, while my husband was working a 24 hour shift in the hospital, I spotted this:
It's solid wood and completely beautiful. How could I just leave it there? So I hopped out of my van, asked my kids to climb out for moral support, and proceeded to cram this thing into the back of the van. How I did it, I do not know. It seems completely impossible now that it's home. But that's not the point--The point is that I snagged this amazing piece of furniture for FREE!
I'm thinking that I'll probably take the doors off to use it as a bookshelf. Or maybe we'll use it as a supply shelf in our Arts and Craft room. I also want to paint it. Maybe white, with some distressing to make it look older? Really, though, I want to paint it a Robin's egg blue. Wouldn't that be gorgeous? Ideas? Opinions? I can't wait to get started!
