Can you guess what this is?
Yes, I know...hideous, which is probably why no-one but me wanted it..poor thing! Even I did not have much hope for it, but I figured for $1,00 it was a gamble I could afford.
Yep, just call me Mrs. Moneybags! That's me!
OK, so this nasty looking whatever, (I'll call it a piece to sound more sophisticated ) has been sitting in my garage all summer. Last week I decided it was time for "The Transformation" to begin.
And here it gets boring..same old, same old. Took the hardware off, primed with Kilz Spray Primer, then sprayed with Krayola Satin Black.
No, I'm lying. There was just a little bit more to this one than that. See the top drawer with its lovely glass insert? I could not think of a plan to make with that, so I took the drawer out and replaced it with a shelf.
( Actually, this part Wonderhusband did...expertly, I must add. Thanks, Love ! Batting Eyelids... )
Ah! But it is in times like these, that my true genius comes out! Or when I get really desperate and rummage through my stuff in the hopes of finding something that might work...
I remembered that I have this cool wallpaper left over from a project a number of years ago.
I used it to cover up the top part of the doors, and then decided to put it on the top as well. And of course painted it black, too.
AND HERE HE (SHE) IS.......
Doesn't the wallpaper look like tin ceiling tiles?
I love the look...
I kept the hardware neutral, because I was not sure what this piece will end up as...
Got the handles at the Habitat Restore.
