Girly Becomes Classy
Ever since Justin and I have been married there is a corner in our living room that I have hated…the corner that was always “off,” the corner that made the rest of the room look strange…the big, ugly corner of our living room. A couple months ago I was scouring craigslist hoping to find the corner cabinet I had been looking for for three years…so I searched “corner cabinet.” I called the number on the post to see what the cost might be. I assumed it would be at least $100. The lady answered on the other end and told me it was $30. She needed to sell it asap as she was about to move and could I come today and pick it up…5 minutes later I was driving to her house.
On my way I called her to ask what the cabinet looked like. She was very sweet and so confident I would adore her “girly cabinet with butterflies and flowers…you sound girly, I know you’ll love it!” My heart began to sink…butterflies and flowers??? How am I going to tell this woman that this cabinet is not going home with me…I pulled up to her house and met her and her 4 lovely children. She showed me the cabinet. It was girly…or maybe a better word would be tacky. For some reason I handed her the $30 and we stuffed it in the Escape.
Here she is in all her former glory:
