Tongue In Cheek Tuesday#3
The Once Upon a Time Respectable Buffet
Once upon a time, she was a respectable serving buffet, in a respectable room for that matter!
Sure, I’d lay down the occasional piece of mail on her… or my set of keys (momentarily)… but on any given day, she was poised and polite.
Oh…from time to time, we would have a party, you know… LET OUR HAIR DOWN~~)
…and we would transform her into our mini bar.
She would hold her head up proudly while
Martinis were shaken
Cocktails were mixed
Wine was poured
Beer bottles were opened
Limes were twisted
Olives were speared…oh my…
…Never loosing sight of her good reputation.
Then one morning, after one of our parties….
This is a snap from one of my parents’ infamous “basement” parties….not that it has anything to do with our respectable-buffet-mini-bar-parties, but doesn’t it look like a blast??
Anyway you get the picture!
So, one morning after one of OUR parties, I started a little DIY project.
I was too tired to finish it that day, hence I tucked the craft glue, craft paint and craft brush
inside one of the her (respectable buffet’s) drawers…
Next thing I know (though it may have taken months or years to notice), she’s propped askew against a different wall, and not even a full wall, as you can see she’s practically hanging all out….pushed aside to make room for other, not-yet-politely-painted buffets, end tables, desks and chairs… now, she has almost no respect at all!!!
Is this the same good-behavior-ed, ever-so-occasionally-sassy, kinda-like- a-tween buffet?
Has she just blossomed into a full-blown-disrespectful-know-it-all-TEEN before my very DIY eyes?
What in the DIY devil has gotten into her?
Her shelves are holding cans of paint, primer and clear coat…
She has drawers full of rags and sandpaper (what?)
She keeps left overs from old projects right out in the open…
Is this what they mean by “she’s finding her independence?”
Then there is odds and ends from new – not quite finished – projects
and a bunch of what-nots from I don’t know when!!!
Now she talks back all the time…
And won’t listen to a dog-gone DIY word I say!!!
And that’s the story of my once respectable serving buffet!!
I’m totally looking forward to reading and viewing everyone else’s secret junk hiding places

Came to see your junk in your trunk post. I am still laughing about a good girl gone bad. It might have been the partying that set her off on the wrong path. Boy, I want to be at that crazy party!
You’re hilarious!!! Good girl gone bad – I think I actually may have been at that party – or one very very similar lmao!
Thanks SO much for linking up!

Tuula @ The Thrifty Rebel says
LMAO!!! Too funny!! Your buffet looks like it’s suffering from a DIY hangover. Just close the doors and drawers, turn off the light, and let it sleep it off. It’ll be right as rain in a year or so.
yep, I stash all kinds of inappropriate items in the oddest places too! Whatever works!
Have a happy weekend!
