Thank you friends for all the birthday wishes on my last post!
I went and picked up my corner cabinet on the weekend.
I sighed when I first laid eyes on it. It was big ... really BIG and probably wouldn't fit in its intended place. I loved it though and couldn't leave without it. Eventually I would find a space for it.
The cabinet barely fit in the back of my van. We tied the backdoor shut as best as we could and made the long journey from Toronto back home. We couldn't risk driving on the highway so we took, what I like to call, the scenic route.
Once we arrived home it was a struggle to move the cabinet into the garage. I was told I was not strong enough to get it back into the house and we would have to wait until my son returned home from a snowboarding trip in Banff.
What ... wait FOUR MORE DAYS before I could have my cabinet in the house! Was he kidding? I instantly thought of Festivus from an episode of Seinfeld.
Festivus was a holiday that George and his family celebrated and part of the festivities was performing 'Feats of Strength' and that was exactly what I was going to do to get that cabinet up a flight of stairs and through a narrow door into my dining room. And I did!
It didn't fit properly under the bulkhead so the top scroll had to be removed.
I'll come up with something to add some detail back to the top.
And my white little curio cabinet that previously occupied this corner ...
