A few months ago (yes, I’ve been holding out on you guys), Matt and I went out to dinner with his family. The restaurant just happened to be next to a Value Village, so there was a family thrifting excursion after dinner.
After a little while in the store, Matt and I exchanged a look. His said, “I didn’t find anything. You ready to go?”
Mine said, “Nope. Absolutely not. I found something I’m quite excited about. You have to come over here right now.”
After years of searching I had found the cabinet that I wanted for my office. My office is our last untouched room–in fact it’s still full of boxes that have been in there since moving day. The cabinet is my trigger to paint the walls, unpack the boxes and finish this space in the way I’ve been imagining for years. So I was not leaving the store without this cabinet–no matter that I was surrounded by my in-laws.
In fact, the in-laws were a bonus. My father-in-law was our chauffeur for the night and his truck was just what we needed to transport the cabinet. My sister-in-law stood guard over the cabinet while I went to the cashier to pay. And my mother-in-law found my father-in-law and told him to bring the truck.
Want to see what had me so excited? (In a very poorly lit picture?)
I have big plans for this cabinet. I think it’s going to be great. I’ll share some of my plans next week.
Do you go shopping as a family? Is there any furniture you’re hunting for?
