You Do the Math

Last December, I decided I wanted some kind of hutch to show off my Christmas village--and to keep it away from little hands.  I found this on craigslist for $35.  So excited. While not real wood, it suited my purposes and fit where I wanted to put it.

A week or so ago, I decided I needed more storage in my kitchen.  I have a beautiful display cabinet that is probably my favorite piece of furniture, but it stores pretties and not much else.  What if I had a real china cabinet that had doors underneath and glass doors above?  Yeah, I think that'll do the trick.

So, after stalking my BFF craigslist, I found this for $25:

Today I sold the white hutch for $50.  I'm not sure, but I think that means I actually paid $10 for the china cabinet!  
Sing with me:  Oh, happy day!

I think it would look fabulous painted black.  
Darrell wants to leave it as is.  
What do you think?  Take the poll.

**Some have suggested I change out the knobs as well, but I don't think I can.  On the bottom are rings, not knobs--and fit into the craving around them.  But I will surely change the knobs at the top!  Good idea!  And I don't know what's up with Blogger and why my poll is sometimes messed up.  Sorry if you haven't been able to vote.

You did good on your purchaces, very impressive.

And for heaven's sake PAINT IT BLACK and bring it into this century {just my opinion}.

Well it sure won't let me vote, so I'll voice my opinion here. Leave it like it is!

Dang, did well!!! $10...and you could have a "side job" doing business buying/reselling hot items like these!!! For got a steal! Although it is a bit "out of date", the real wood looks best, and probably matches things better in your kitchen.
