Before and After ....

I always wanted a step back cabinet but have never found one that I was crazy about. So the other day I got to thinking about a book case that I got at GW for $4.99... Hmmm what if I put it on top of the set of drawers that I rescued from someones trash a few years ago??? Would it look stupid???  So I painted it and turned it upside down and Viola'. I think it will do just fine and for under $5, I love trash to treasures! What do you think?





P.S. The paint I use for everything is called Pure, it has no voc's and virtually no odor. It is carried by Menards for about $21 a gallon.
