Anyway, here's what started it all with me. I found this old broken down solid wood stereo cabinet for $6 at Goodwill back about a year ago and my hubby thought I'd lost my mind when he saw it in the garage:
And this is what I ended up with.
Sorry folks. No glamour shots. It dawned on me as I was posting I didn't take any "afters", so I went running in and was informed the MEN weren't taking a break from "World's Dumbest" so I could have a photo shoot. They were laughing too hard. Go figure. Anyway, thus the beautiful shots.
I took the doors off and did some repair, sanded it down, and painted. I then hinged the doors, put pulls on, and magnetic latches. For now, it sits in the family room with my hubby's ginormous flat screen on it, movies/PS3 games on one side, magazines on the other. You wouldn't believe the amount of storage in this baby! I still want to glam it up some but I took a break when I couldn't find the small half-rounds I wanted to finish it up. I'll get to it and show you posts eventually.
So, I was hooked. I was so excited to have new furniture for only $6!!!! Tomorrow I'll share what that led to...a hubby nervous breakdown. Just kidding (sort-of).
