Here's an "ALMOST AFTER" photo

Don't get too excited...the shelves aren't in it yet.  They need to be re-cut.  A case of measure twice, cut half-assed.  I'm not ready for solo skill saw usage - so I'll wait until a man comes home.

BEFORE....


AFTER...


I used wallpaper to cover the back, and bought new ceramic nobs, and added some decorative legs.  I hope to be able to soon post another photo with the shelves in place, and stacks of neatly folded fabric inside.


"Not bad...not bad."

While I was out thrifting today, I picked up a book with instructions on how to paint used furniture.  I sure hope I pick up some tips on how to make the process easier!

  3. Good eye! You turned a diamond in the rough into something really nice. The legs were a great choice - it was definitely calling for them. Super job!

  4. Gibson might want to sleep in that cabinet--maybe you could keep fabric in his cat bed...
