There’s Something New in the Neighborhood…

Update: This blog has moved! You can check out this post here.

…who you gonna call? Ghostbusters! Sorry, I seem to have a thing about referencing kitschy songs from the 80s the past couple of weeks. I promise that will stop soon.

However, there is something new in my neighborhood, more specifically, in my living room. One of the items on my project list was to replace the entertainment center that was in the corner. I look on Craigslist periodically, just to see if anything catches my eye, and on Monday night I saw a china cabinet that was the exact width that I was looking for. It would fit perfectly along that wall, giving me maximum storage while still allowing the curtain to hang down the side of the window.

  1. What a beautiful piece! Kudos to you for polishing it up and giving it a new lease on life! I think I will try that Restore-a-Finish on my mom’s dresser, which got water damaged when we had a massive leak disaster in the attic a few years ago. I hope you enjoy your new cabinet for many years to come!

    By the way, don’t worry about the song references. In my blog I’ve used some references to musicals, and I swear NOBODY gets it. That won’t stop me from doing it again! 🙂

  2. Hello, I am the seller. I just read your blog and I am glad to see the cabinet find a beautiful place to rest and I am equally glad to know that it is bringing you so much joy and pride. I’m happy to have played a part in that. By the way, I am still trying to sell the other beautiful china cabinet that you saw when you came to pick up yours.
    On another note, I agree with you about not letting children win, just to build up thir self esteem. I think doing the contrary builds a false sense of skill and then they go through life not tough enough to overcome defeat or failure. I think your approach does build toughness just as your sister attested to.
    Anyway, thanks for keeping me posted about your experience with the cabinet. Good luck with all of your endeavors.

  3. I want to see a picture of the cabinet from further back so that I can see how it fits into the room please. I also would like to point out that I may have one or two games before I was 17. 🙂

    • I can’t take a picture from further back. My living room is really small! I will try to take a picture from a different angle.

      And I am sure that you might have won one or two games before you were 17 when one of us war sick or distracted. 😉

I would love to hear what you have to say about this post!
