I have a couple of new things to play with. First is this scratch 'n dent secretary we bought on clearance months ago, way back last May for pete's sake. The wall it needs to go on was occupied by my husband's piano that no one uses (I know, it is a little sad to have an unused piano). So the secretary has been languishing in our garage and I've been trying not to hit it with the family truckster for months while we tried to sell the piano.
So now the piano is gone (thank you Craigslist) and this thing is finally sitting in the house. It has a lot of potential, and I am wondering what I'm going to fill it with, exactly. It looks so neutral and a little blah right now. I can really see some colorful things on the shelf, or maybe even some experimental glass painting or fabric blinds for the doors in case I need to hide uglies.
There are some problems, for instance it is missing some hardware. Some that is easy to replace like magnetic door closures, some not so easy, like this lock cover. Anyone know of a specialty hardware place that has stuff like this, hopefully on the cheap? Ace and Home Depot, not so much.
The other toy that I am so torqued about is this, from my sweet hubby. I've never had a Wacom tablet and I am really excited to try it out. Do you like yours?
