TRASH PICKER


OK, Guess what I found on the trash?  Guess again?  Ok, I'll just tell you.  I found this same cabinet!  I dragged my father back to the trash pile to put it in his truck, didn't want to get my truck dirty.  Ok, don't tell him I said that, but it's true.  Ok, my Dad is the chief trash picker in our family and it has definetly rubbed off on me.  Let me just tell you, I actually found two of these and when I returned, someone had taken one of them, insert angy face!  Anywho, I have been storing this beauty in my Dad's garage offcourse, since the fall.  He sanded it down and is STILL waiting for me to pick a paint color.  Today, (yeaaah)  I discover this inspiring beauty online.  Oh, did I mention this is not the actual cabinet.  Well, anyway now I am totally TOTALLY inspired now to pick a paint color and have my gracious Father duplicate this cabinet.  How exciting, maybe he can have it finished by the time I return from JAMAICA!  Let me know if you have any suggestions about paint color and organizational add ons to the doors and shelves...

Oh, it's amazing! I've got a soft spot for tropical colors - distressed turquoise or coral, perhaps? Or basic black.
Have fun in Jamaica!
