Cute Little $1 Yard Sale Cabinet

Yard Sale Cabinet
Originally uploaded by scraps4girls
I got this cabinet at a yard sale on Saturday. The lady wanted $5 for it, but it had a big gash in the back that went thru to the front. I talked her down to $1. Then, I took it home and taped up the gash with duct tape and covered the inside back with wallpaper. Cute, no? Not bad for a BUCK!!! I adore little cabinets, especia;;y when they have doors to keep the dust out. I'm not one for housework! In fact, if I was to ever do wife swap (and someone please slug me if I ever try!) my house would be the dirty one that the other wife would just hate to live in. Dust balls in the corners? yep. Crumbs on the kitchen floor? you betcha. Unmade beds? Heaven forbid...but, yeah. You get the idea. Cute little cabinets that keep the dust out? OH YEAH! That means I only have to dust in there once every year or so....
just kidding. sort of.
