My new sweater storage system. 

 It wasn't really Ted, but that was the phrase that came to mind when the dude who posted this on Craigslist answered the door.  He was a big guy, with some big hair.  Camo pants, combat boots, an army green tank top,and an Obama Sucks baseball hat. 


He was actually a perfectly nice guy who helped me get this thing down the steps AND into my car, so hey.   We discussed neither politics nor religion, and I gave him $100 for this cabinet, which is lined entirely in cedar and will repel any moths who dare come near my stuff.  Lucky for me, only he smelled like cigarettes and engine parts, or my sweaters could never live in this thing. 



It just needs a little love, some new knobs, and a good sanding to get the cedar going.  I love Craigslist.

Serious love (for this piece and Craigslist). I just picked up a campaign style dresser for peanuts. Love that yours is lined with cedar. How perfect!

This is awesome! Craigslist is fun - both the selling and the buying ends:) Your sweaters will love it....

PS - which child's writing is that on the wall behind the armoir in the first picture? And were they bribing Dad for something? If they were - I hope they were successful!!! lol....

Score! Funny, I would have been kind of daunted by 'Ted'. Anyway, love the story and the amazing yarn chest!

What a score, and lined with cedar even. As for Ted, only in our dreams, right? ;)

Sweet - what a great piece. Not sure I would have been able to get past Ted and the hat, but looks like it was worth it!
