TV Cabinet Makeover

I see old TV cabinets every time I visit thrift stores. They have usually been marked down a time or two and are really cheap. The poor things are becoming obsolete and I just want to rescue them all! I always think what great storage pieces they could be if only given the chance. Awesome friends, I finally found one that would actually fit in my jeep: Although it was more than I wanted to spend at $50, I knew Furniture Fixer Upper Day was coming and I thought this would be a fun one … [Read more...]

Garage Junk Repurposed

Hello beautiful Friends! I'm back today with a fun little project. This is from a couple  of years ago. It's one of my favorite projects because something cute and functional was created out of mostly trash! I started with this: This wasn't the trash part.

It became the  perfect door frame for this sweet little mini cabinet: Isn't it cute? That … [Read more...]
