Revitalizing an Old Buffet with Lemon Oil + Breaking My Food Processor.

Hey, everybody. Guess what?

I scored a sweet deal on Craigslist. A SWEEEEET DEAL! I got an antique buffet for fifty bucks. Fifty dolla! 

John and I went to Vinton, picked up this quirky little find of mine and brought 'er back home for some TLC. There are six legs on this buffet, and a rear leg was broken. John, being the handy-man that he is, fixed that leg right up! Other than the broken leg, this buffet needed some refinishing - a task I am NOT going to complete in our cold garage in the middle of winter. So, we brought the buffet inside - looking pathetic and rickety - with intentions to wait until Spring to refinish. 

But then I got an idea. 


Yep. Old English Lemon Oil. 

You'll recall that last weekend this bottle of Lemon Oil helped me transform an old doll bed into a 'dog perch' for Manny, who was always on the back of our leather furniture, looking out the window. 

Anyway. I digress...

With a rag in hand and my bottle of Lemon Oil, I managed to breathe some new life into our sad little Craigslist buffet. 
As you can see, the right side had the pleasure of meeting the Lemon Oil. 
I hadn't done the doors or drawers on the buffet yet, but even from afar you can tell which side was Lemon Oil-ed! 
And about 30 minute later, voile!

So, you can imagine I was feelin' pretty dang good after turning a $50 Craiglist find into a glowing buffet of glory. At this point, I had fixed something that was broken, making it my own. I was unstoppable. 

I was so unstoppable, in fact, that I decided to grate some cheese. 

Side note: I buy cheese in big blocks from a bulk food store and grate it myself to save money. Don't judge me. 

I whipped out my box grater and went to town. 


Then I had a revelation! Why the heck was I grating all this cheese by hand, when I could use my food processor's shredding plate?! 

I am a genius! 


Nevermind. I'm not a genius. My wimpy food processor couldn't handle all that cheese. (Don't worry. John can't handle a lot of cheese either. *snicker*)

I broke the mechanism that turns the blades. My food processor is now broken. I broke one of few things in my home that was 'fixed'. This is tragic, people! 

I use my food processor all. the. time. ALL THE TIME! I just hope Target has this replacement part. Otherwise, I might be back on Craigslist...because now I have to fix what's broken...again.

Tentu susahnya melakukan top up deposit ketika kita ingin bermain membuat kita semua merasa malas untuk bermain, selain itu metode top up melalui via SMS sudah tidak efektif lagi karena tidak aman dan juga sangat lama deposit kalian masuk akun kalin. Karena itu penting untuk mencari agen slot yang mampu memberikan kalian metode top up yang aman bukan? Game Slot Online Terbaik
