It doesn't get any better than this....

Free that is....  Another roadside find by my husband.  Sunday on a way to a friend's house, he spied this little gem on the side of the road... with a FREE sign.

A free cabinet.  Just what I was looking for to go in my newly painted front porch.  A little cleaning...

Of course, it does need a coat of paint... it's not the right color of green.  And the cream is well, too creamy.   Maybe a little distressing too.

But it's just right for some of my vintage pottery and little art pieces that I'd like to display in my front porch.  It's exactly the right size... my only complaint is I would have like glass doors... I guess I'll just leave one open instead!


And I won't need to wait to have one built for me!

I know I'll have a paint brush in hand this weekend,

  16. Some people have all the luck. What a great looking cabinet. One time my husband found a free s sign on a Weber Grill. I believe that is the only thing we have ever picked up. I am always on the look out though. Have fun painting your new score!!
