I really like doing this.
I won this thing at the auction this morning. It was $2.00. My receipt says it is a cupboard. Ok, we'll go with that. I need a cupboard.
It did have shelves, but they were covered with ummm, something icky. So when I took this picture they were soaking in cleaning stuff. Then the outside of it had like six layers of wall paper on it. It was cute wall paper but torn and stained and it had to go, so I scraped it all off.
Then I thought, now what? Do I paint it, do I strip it, do I leave it like it is? I decided to go shabby chic and leave it pretty much the way it was.
I had these glass cabinet doors that I got at the auction a few weeks ago, I think they were $4.00. I KNEW I'd find a use for them.
But did they fit my "cupboard"? Nope. So I had to go buy lumber and tweak a little. The little oak carved thingy came off a mirror frame that I tore apart for another project. The hangers were on the inside, but I moved them to the outside.
So after some swears and pounded thumbs...I am pretty happy with the end product. I think my total investment is about $20.00.
