New toy

Here's the winter project- my cabinet! Isn't it purty? For $48 from the oppy next door to work (it's a trap, I tell you), and a little bit for delivery, I'm pretty happy. I forgot to take a pic before I pulled all the doors off, I was so excited to clean it up!

Don't let the old exterior fool you- it's either an old cupboard that's been repaired, or a newly built one made to look old! New timber frame inside, and Masonite shelves in the bottom cabinet.

It's definitely been used in the kitchen- grease and dirt all over the outside, but ah-ha! I have a secret weapon! Here is the before....

And the after.
(If you're not sure what you're looking it, a white wall as opposed to grimy).

This is the culprit- Doktor Power! I don't know why, but it makes it fun! No stinky smells, either, especially around kidlets. Actually, get the kidlets to clean for you! Mine's nagging already for a turn (and I haven't let her yet, nasty!)

I hate to pump the advertising, but it is a little bit like magic! It just makes everything else look dirty after you've used it!

I love the look of it, can't wait to see it with the doors on. What a bargain.

Oooh it's great Bec, and I have used the same sort of sponges from Bunnings - can't believe how good they are, they're excellent in the shower too for the shower recess not for you!)

The trouble with me is, I'd buy it and pop it in the cupboard expecting it to work all by itself. Maybe.....I should invite you over for a demo...? Brilliant!
