A $2 Deal

I've been looking for something to display my soaps at the craft show so I went to our local auction a few weeks ago. The auction is huge, and you can find anything there. A lady next to me had just bought a whole lot of "stuff", and I noticed this little shelf in the pile. I asked her if she'd be willing to sell it, and she sold it to me for $2. It looked a little rough, and I didn't need the mugs, but I thought it had potential.



I took it home and started cleaning it up.


I took off the door and all the hardware and cleaned it up. I figured it'd be pretty cute with a coat of paint, so I painted it the same color as my kitchen.


It's just about the perfect size, and for $2 I think it worked out perfectly! In the future I may need to move up to something bigger, but for now it's just right.
