One of the ladies I work with, Donna, inherited some furniture from her mother's estate, which she has no room for. It's been cluttering up her garage, so she very kindly offered it to me. Hmmm... free furniture. Should I take it? Yes, please! I'm home alone this weekend, but I'm just hardheaded enough to figure I could handle the smallest piece on my own, so Saturday I picked this up. Donna helped me load it in my little Honda, Zippy, but when I got it home I pulled it out and dragged it upstairs to my sunroom all by myself. It's a solid, plain little knotty pine Shaker style cabinet that Donna's mom had made to hold her microwave and toaster oven. I have a homeless toaster oven, so I knew I could make immediate use of it. The finish looks really good in my photo, but it wasn't perfect and I'm sitting it next to the cherry hutch you see behind it, so I gave it a paint job to help keep things harmonious. Ok, so I'm in a white phase, I'll admit it.

|Ahh, that's better.|
Now I need some input - I'm thinking this would look pretty darn cute with some feet and with a bit of molding around the top. Do you think that would seem out of place? I'm not sure, but I might have to give it a whirl and see how it looks.
