Surprise! I got distracted from our slow-moving kitchen remodel long enough to buy a big ugly piece of furniture on Craigslist:
It’s a buffet. A five-and-a-half-foot long beast of a buffet that is going to be totally awesome in the guest room. That’s where it is now, at the foot of the bed — because thanks to the chaos spreading from our kitchen, there’s no place else to put it. And knowing how hard it was to get this monster up the stairs, it looks like any “fixing up” of this buffet will also happen in the guest room. That thing’s not moving.
My lovely, long-suffering husband helped me load it into a borrowed vehicle, and then helped me get it up our switchback stairway. And he never once complained.
What he DID do is make it very clear that he thought it was ugly. Which is great — hey, we found something we agree on!
Check it out, it’s so big I couldn’t get a good picture of it.
Okay, but you’re probably wondering why I’d spend $100 on a gigantic piece of furniture that I’ve admitted is ugly. Of course I have some harebrained scheme to make it look not ugly.
I’m not sure what that plan is yet, but it has something to do with these glass knobs:
Then picture it in a light-blue room, with a new headboard, and some new bedding, and a couple of nightstands…
Whew, let me take a deep breath. Gotta focus on finishing the kitchen.
For now, let’s just bask in the glory that is an ugly piece of furniture with lots of potential.
Because as we all know, I’m a sucker for potential.
