Our last trip to Brimfield was fruitful. We made several wonderful purchases including a sweet French chair, some great costume jewelry pieces – lots of Trifari treasures, and a few items for work. The one thing we were missing from our basket however, was some kind of storage for the bathroom.
We made a decision that we would need to find something small and cheap because: 1. The space is long and narrow with a pedestal sink that accounts for zero storage and very little room for building something. In fact, the only space that a piece of furniture could fit is in between the sink and the bathtub, which is less than 13″ wide and under 26″ high. 2. We could install a vanity, which could solve all of our storage issues but the pedestal sink is nice and suits the rest of the room very well and our budget can not account for a new vanity right now. Bummer, right?
Luckily, along came mom to save the day. I have to prefix this with the fact that the woman loves to shop and loves a mission. This is how it all went down.
I called her on I think a Friday or Saturday and explained to her the situation. By Tuesday or Wednesday I got a phone call while I was at work,
Hi, LAW-Ren! (that’s how she says my name)
Hello mom (I’m whispering because my co-workers can hear everything)
Lawren, why are you whispering?! Oh wait, are you at work?!
Oh okay, well real quick! I found a cabinet for $125, should I buy it?
Um, what does it look like?
It’s nice and small, dark wood, you could paint it. If you don’t like it I’ll keep it! – She would keep everything if she could.
Then Yes. Get it!
And that was it, I bought a cabinet, sight unseen!
When she brought it down a week later, I was second guessing the purchase. I never thought it would fit. Until, voila! A perfect fit! It’s a little beat up, but still super cute and holds all of the necessities. I knew this would be possible! Thanks mom for such a great find!
