Trash to Treasure Tuesday...

A few weekends ago, I stopped at one of my favorite Thrift Stores my way home from a day of treasure hunting with my friend Kate...and this little beauty was just sitting there waiting for me!


If I told you what I paid for it you wouldn't believe me...I think someone mis-marked it because aside from being scratched up, there was absolutely nothing wrong with it!


After two coats of Glidden's Barely Jade, this is what it looks like today...



And it's perfect for holding all my handmade books and journals!

I LOVE it! What an awesome piece! So glad you rescued it and gave it a sweet, new home. And love it's new color. One can never have enough cool storage!

See you friday!
Kate
PS- can I put more exclamation points in there?

I love your trash to treasure projects. This one is so pretty! I hope to find some "trashy" pieces and make treasures out of them, too!
