|Miss Pixie inspecting the cupboard|
Ever on the look out, I've done it again.
For almost a year we have been using a makeshift kitchen after we ripped the guts out of our old one and along the way we have added pieces, shelves, cupboards from garage sales etc. We don't want to spend a lot of money as one day in the future it will be upgraded in the "big" reno.
So the story is on Monday I went past a house further down in my street that looked like it was under going a reno, with a skip bin out the front. I spied this kitchen cabinet in the front yard, so I pulled over and cheeky me went to the front door and asked the owner if he was getting rid of it, to which he said I could have it, just take it away. I thanked him very much and said I'd be back.
Well we have been so busy in the evenings this week and we haven't managed to collect it yet. I was getting a bit worried that they may just put it in the skip and it would be gone, but today Andy was home, so we went to see if it was still there which it was. Yay!
It was too heavy to lift onto the roof racks, but we do have a hand trolley, so we walked it along three blocks back home, stopping to say hello to neighbours as they laughed at our resourcefulness.
Now I just have to clean it up.
