A Small Project Finally Finished

About six months ago I stopped at a yard sale. I saw some end tables and a small entertainment center. All three pieces were really ready to be smashed and burned, they were so bad. I bought one end table and the dilapidated entertainment center for a dollar a piece.

I fixed up the end table and it is in use already.

I took off the glass doors to the entertainment center, which were the only things holding the center together. I just knew I was going to be able to do something with them.

Two months ago, my niece had a fund raiser for school. I went through the online brochure and found some fabulous wrapping paper and went ahead an ordered it with the intention of using it as a drawer liner. I later changed my mind.

I knew exactly what I was going to do, I just had to wait for the wrapping paper to get to me. It was promised to be delivered Thanksgiving day. I called my sister three times to remind her and told her to put it in the car.

Thursday came and I asked for it. Nope it was forgotten! (Sister, What part of "Put in car" doesn't compute?) I then turn to my niece.. Where is my paper? She started to blame her parents for forgetting, I reminded her that I bought the paper from her not her parents!

What type of answer did I get from this 11 yr old? A big "Whatever"

Well, after having to go deliver Dad's oxygen tank, yesterday. I finally managed to get my paper!

I started my project last night, and finished today.

I am going to put them on my wall, as soon as I get my room going.

What do you think?

That is SO cool! My boyfriend bought a chest of drawers last weekend off Craigslist and we sanded and painted it and made it look brand new. You can find a bunch of furniture for free or very cheap on Craigslist if you're willing to go pick it up and put a little work into it.

I'll tell you what I said *exactly* when I saw the photo: "FABULOUS." Then I clicked to look closer and I said "FAB. U. LOUS."

Excellent job, sweetie! I'm so darn proud of you!

They look excellent!!

Smileyfreak...Thanks, glad you like them.

Stephanie...I find it to be so much more fun to fix things or create thing out of something that looks like it is on its last leg. Very rewarding.

Kathryn...Aww thanks, sweetie!

Sprite's Keeper...Thanks! They were so easy to do and I'm thinking of doing the same thing with some old picture frames.
