I normally buy really nice items with minimal scratches, a good colour and avoid anything that might need a lot of work as I have a day job and I have kids – so time is very limited to work on a project.

For some reason I bought it and now I’m thinking over my options of what to do, so I turned to Pinterest (of course!).
