Ooooops I've done it again!!

I won a lovely little pine cupboard this evening....I have been wanting a corner cupboard for a while now for the bathroom to hold the toothbrushes , shaving stuff etc.
I just don't like seeing it all on show and I'm not a fan of bathroom cabinets either so when I saw this I was really pleased...bid on it and won and said goodbye to another tenner lol
I was initially thinking of painting it but will wait to see if the wood is as nice a colour as it seems,if so I will leave well alone, as I think it looks lovely



I keep saying I'm not buying anything else and then I just take a peek and I'm snuckered!!

Ha I have just reread this post and had to laugh where I've written that I don't like to see toothbrushes, shaving kit etc lol makes me sound quite anal but I am soooooo not....and don't have a houseproud bone in my body ...as my MIL always said
''A blind man would be glad to see it''
but I think my home would be the exception to the rule...I kid you not ha!

Oh I like that. I can't blame you for bidding on it as it looks good quality wood and not flimsy.

I’m surprised you have any room left in your house! ;0)

You really so seem too pick up some good bargains! I agree with you for ten pounds how could you not bid on it.

Love Lou xxx

Laj what a bargain - that looks like really nice wood as well - a tenner I can't believe it - you are really doing well :)

That looks like a lovely piece of proper old pine and I would be reluctant to paint it too. For a tenner too .... well done. x

LOVE IT LOTS!! It looks like beautiful old, mellow, aged pine. i think it would be a shame to paint it!! What a lovely bargain!
Of course, if it was aged, orange pine.......!!!!!

It does look like a lovely rustic colour wood. I'm not big on painting everything in sight (I know lots of others would), but I think if it looks lovely leave it. I'm convinced in 10 year's we will all be seeing on Antiques roadshow 'this would have been worth xx thousands, but because someone painted it it's worth £20'. ;-)

Ebay is Soooo addictive - fast as I try to declutter I also spot bargains which I MUST bid for! Actually, in our house there isn't one room that doesn't either contain some secondhand furniture or furniture made by my husband.

No need to brave the weather buying from Ebay either!

(I'm working my way backwards on your blog)
