Hall cabinet

Yay! It’s finally here. I’ve been hunting for the right hall cabinet for ages and finally, at Salvation Army, for $95.

Minutes after arrival. Hannah’s already had her blocks in it.

Discovered to my delight a drawer just above the blocks.

After a buff of teak oil and reorganising my stuff, it comes up good. And it finally fits the space and use.

It’s needing a lamp… and I would love to hang my newly painted mirror.

But I need a home for that, because rentals only allow 3M hooks and this is heavier than the “1kg load per hook”.
