Let's just pretend for a moment that I am somewhere near the time where I will be restoring my bathroom. Let's pretend that there are no other projects before it in line. If we pretend.....then I can enjoy the deal I found today.
Yesterday I went to a local salvage store. This place is messy, unorganized, overpriced, and the help is often just plain surly. Things are piled on top of each other and you get the feeling....dump or store...they don't care. But, every so often I go in just to look. There piled in a corner was a grubby, old medicine cabinet. It caught my eye because at 28" x 30" it was fairly large...and it had all of its original parts (albeit, under many layers of gross paint). It needed a lot of work and they were asking $75....so I walked on by. But on my way out the front door, I saw a sign advertising a 50% off sale starting today.
I woke up this morning and remembered the sale. I told myself that if.....after I went to get my coffee....and I drove over there....and it was still there.....and it was, in fact, 50% off......I was allowed to buy it. Sure enough, this morning there it sat. So, for $40.13 I am now the proud owner of a new medicine cabinet.
It will be months before I get to working on my bathroom (and the exisiting horrific, yet oh-so-large medicine cabinet).......but its hard to pass up a deal :-)
