I'm Crazy Right?

I keep finding amazing deals on Craigslist and I can't help myself--I have to have them! I bought this piece for $40! It's missing two piece of glass...but I'm thinking of taking the doors off anyway and keeping it open. Maybe? Also, I have to decide on a color..black or white? I haven't even started on the secretary desk I bought last week! Todd says no more stuff until I get these finished. I have next week off, so hopefully it's not too hot and I can get it done! Here is some of my inspiration:

great inspiration! Have fun painting. I think it would be cute off white with aqua on the inside like one of the inspiration pictures. I guess it depends where you are puting it.

What a steal! I like your idea of taking the doors off. I would be stumped too as to which color to paint it, especially since all of the inspiration photos are gorgeous. Can't wait to see the "after" pictures!

LOVE it! What a great deal you got on it! I'm thinking paint it white...how about adding beautiful patterned wallpaper or scrapbook paper to the inside?! Let us know what you decide!

Wow, $40 was a steal - that's a beautiful piece and I'm looking forward to seeing how you transform it!

I wanted to let you know that the coding for your button link is just a bit off and doesn't work properly. You can fix it by replacing your link that says: www.peanutpetunia.blogspot.com with this: http://peanutpetunia.blogspot.com/

For some reason, the "www" part messes it up. Just thought I'd let you know! I fixed it on my blog when I added it, so it works fine on my end now. Thanks again for trading buttons!

I love the splash of color on the inside in your inspiration pics! I might have to steal that idea :-)

I can't wait to see how this turns out!! (and the secretary too!)

Holy gorgeous steal, Batman!!! I've been looking for something like this on my CL and haven't found anything:( I say paint it white with some funky treatment on the back of the cubbies (another paint color, wallpaper, fabric, stencil). Can't wait to see the transformation!!!!

Pamela said...
