When you cant go to french flea markets...



"I can't believe you are painting something five days before you move" said my neighbor.

Yup, right before the move, DH and I were in the garage painting a hutch I had just bought from Craig's list .

"Dont you have other things you need to do ? " they asked.

Sure I did... but come on there are priorities here...and I had my straight...a girl has got to have a place to showcase her blue and white flea market finds....

So for $100.00 , a can of leftover paint, and new $4.00 knobs from Home Depot.... voila I had a cabinet to hold all my dishes.

I. heart. Craigs. List !
