Furniture Update: Creating After School Storage
I had been living with a messy entryway for years. We wanted a place where for the kids to store their items after school, but I just hadn't figured a way to make it pretty.
A sweet neighbor was selling two of these thirty year old Thomasville pine cabinets for a SONG ($20 each!) and when I saw them, inspiration struck!
See this? This mess is what greeted guests to my house! I just quickly ushered them into other places in the house and hoped they didn't notice. Functional? Yes. Pretty? Not a chance!
I'd recently acquired this removable wallpaper and was looking for reasons to put it to good use. I mean come on ... those bees!
A little paint to match the wallpaper - even after the first coat, I was getting so excited about the transformation!
I found my PERFECT accent color, too!
A few hours and some innovation later - I had a MUCH more presentable storage solution. I LOVE how this turned out - especially considering it was my very first time so dramatically redoing any furniture pieces.
