Decisions, Decisions.

Disclaimer: I am not a good picture taker.

Silver Lining: I’m trying to improve! 🙂

Now that we got that out-of-the-way, I can give you something to ponder with me! I have been searching and searching for a glass front cabinet for our living room for about 6 months now, but what I’ve found on CraigsList and out thrifting has been out of my budget. Enter a lucky find at Goodwill last week for 45 bones!

That’s a pretty hefty piece of furniture for 45 bucks right? Now I would like you to take a moment to imagine me trying to fit this in a Jeep Wrangler, and then trying to unload it by myself when I got home. Hint: it involved batting eyelashes and some construction men pouring concrete at our neighbor’s house.

One of the most happy accidents is how well this piece matches with another goodwill find we have in the living room that we made over two years ago: (poor lighting alert)

See the similar lines?

I’m still deciding how to spruce her up. Maybe my first chalk paint project? I’m thinking she could look nice in a warm white with the cabinet interior stained a rich mahogany. We’ll see.

The fun part is deciding what treasures she’ll hold.

I’m dying to start a vintage Pyrex collection…

Or maybe I’ll start a Jadeite collection like Ms Martha?

Maybe Santa will decide for me and bring me a super fun vintage find for Christmas! 😉 Any collections you love or wish you could start??

  1. JO…So glad you’re doing this blog. You’re so obviously embarking in the next ‘Young House Love’ phenomenon. Consider a bright pop of color on the inside, paint or wallpaper, if you’re going white on the outside…You can always change the interior color as you change up the collections it’ll hold. Think of how amaze balls a cobalt blue backdrop would be for a Jadeite collation…

    • Thanks Jenn!! It’s a fun way to hold myself accountable to all the crazy lofty goals i’ve scribbled on post its around the house :-). I LOVE the idea of wallpaper, not sure I could commit to it that hardcore though, now you’ve got me wanting to paint a fun color on the inside, cobalt?!? AMAZE.
