When you put your knee through the "new" granny cabinet
This is what you do when you get impatient and decide to move a heavy cabinet by yourself......like I did. I put my knee through the (probably expensive to replace) curved side glass on my new retro cabinet.
Queue gasps, a scream, lots of OH NO's and tons of cursing! I've been wanting one like this for ages and after a popping in and out of second hand dealers in town for a while now, I found this one.........in mint condition. I should have taken a photo, but imagine a great big fault line through the centre of the side panel.
So after I broke the glass I decided to fill it and then after a bit more sulking I decided I needed to take action, so I got out my pile of retro wallpaper pieces and went to work on a bit of patch working. A quote needs to be done on how much it will cost to replace the glass, but for now it will probably stay like this. I really like it and may even properly stick the wallpaper pieces down (and move the phone and modem to another spot).
The original granny cabinet has been moved around the corner and now holds my Pyrex and big retro kitchen pieces.
So there you have it one newish but slightly broken china cabinet. Happy days!
