Life gets busy. Sometimes too busy. It happens at marathon pace. In between raising children, working, hunting for vintage treasure and maintaining a creaky old house.....sometime I forget stuff. This old cupboard is a good example of that.
See that mildew.....that's what happens when you score an amazing bargain on EBay, have it delivered miraculously intact by Australia Post, hide it down under the house to explain to your husband later ( i.e. put it in the house while he's at work and say "Oh that old thing, we've had that for AGES" ) and then, well, forget you have it ......for say 8 years.
Then, a pretty picture a friend posted on Face book made me go...." Hang on... I've got something like that somewhere" ( Thank you Melissa xx)
Actually, sometimes 8 years wait can be a good thing. 8 years ago, I would have stripped this girls paint off and waxed her.
Now I'm in the whole original paint and patina phase and I'm so so pleased she was.....forgotten.
"Oh that old thing, we've had her for AGES"
Have you ever forgotten something?
