Yes, the title is another reference to literary fiction. You’ll find I’m never lacking in that sort of thing! I will let you be the one to look this one up and find out who wrote the short story bearing this title. Hint: NEVERMORE.
Anyway, I’ve been MIA for quite a while. Although it would seem, given my lengthy absence, that I should have gobs of photos from finished projects…alas, I do not. But dry your eye, my dear friend, as there may be lovely things in the very near future! I currently have FOUR ongoing projects.
1. A vintage metal cabinet that I am in the process of stripping and refinishing to add much needed storage in our kitchen.
2. An antique china cabinet I will be painting and using for storage in my craft room/office (which is currently piled high with items I have “no place for”).
3. Matching “cheapy” nightstands that I need to paint to match our dresser…which is also unfinished.
4. Unfinished dresser set (one is in our bedroom, one is in the hallway).
I bought all of these items from Craigslist. The grand total? $127. Yep, you read that correctly! One hundred and twenty-seven dollars for two dressers, two nightstands, a large vintage metal cabinet, and a large antique china cabinet. Most of my friends and family know that I am the champion of getting the best deal possible. I did, afterall, plan our entire wedding for under $10,000 (and it was a “regular” wedding, not a cheapo one)!
The next items on my shopping list include a sectional sofa (I found a beautiful vintage one from the 60s, just waiting to hear back!), a bigger dining room table and 8 chairs, a piano, and some sort of storage cabinet/shelf for the bathroom.
A whirlpool of furniture awaits me!
