Remember earlier this week I shared with you my visit to 2nd Saturdayz? Well there was “one more find” I mentioned that I would share with you…
So when I opened up the back of my SUV – my husband looked at me and shook his head & said……”are you serious? that thing is huge! what is it?”
I said – “never mind what it is – isn’t it just so cool…look at the fabulous chippy paint and character its going to bring to the kitchen….it’s so unique and charming”. Mind you, this scale’s measurements are 30” high, 18.5 wide and 21” deep. and very very heavy. Still looking at me like I’m nuts – he carries it into the kitchen and set in the only location not restricting us to height due to cabinets above.
Always being supportive of my purchases and I don’t believe he’s ever complained once about what I bring home, he honestly doesn’t say a word. However, as we both stepped back to ‘admire’ my purchase, he started to giggle & said – “Honey, I believe this is your first fail”…”just too big for the counter and takes up too much space” & then he said, “Can I be honest, it looks like a toilet bowl”…. I stood for a while wondering – is it just because it’s new & we aren’t used to having something sit there? Really, a toilet bowl?
After staring for a very long time trying to make this piece adjust to the vision I thought I’d see in my counter – I finally admitted defeat.
He was relieved when I asked him to move the now infamous “toilet bowl” into the corner next to the kitchen hutch… Haven’t decided what to do with it, where to put it & if I should even keep it. I do love it though – with all the charm and character it carries…
