Now that we've implemented new austerity measures around here, it will take some time before it's all done, too.
Since I saw this picture in January, I've wanted to replace those shelves with a bath cabinet.
I'll just let you experience the full impact of these shelves before I go on.
Bath cabinets, or "over johns" as they are called here are horribly expensive for what you get: melamine clad particle board, mostly. Awful stuff--$60 on sale was about the cheapest I could find--but it wasn't white and too big for the width of my space.
So, I resolved to live with the shelves and paint them white when we had money for paint.
But, in an effort to generate a few dollars to throw at our debt, I have been listing things to sell. And it occured to me one night that I could look for things to buy, too, like an over john.
So, yesterday I drove to the extreme north end of our city and purchased a small "cape cod" style overjohn.
For those following our journey on Dave Ramsey's financial plan, know that I purchased it with my "blow" money--for $25.00.
Last night, my husband and my son hung it and I scrounged different knobs.
I think it looks very odd hung up there, though. Should it be lower? Sort of where the old shelves were? It is physically possible.
Let me know what you think.
(Hubby will not want to move it though, so if it sort of looks OK, let me know that, too!)
Linking to the 131st Met Monday.
