Sweet Jen at Sanctuary Arts at Home is having a make-over, trash-to-treasure party. I had a hard time deciding what to show you (I have shared this before, but hopefully it is new to some of you). Not because everything I do is so wonderful, but some projects do become like babies to you--it is hard to pick your favorite! But this is one of my favorites I guess because it was made from objects found roadside or for free at garage sales. I started with a desk that was sitting on the side of the road with a free sign on it.
I took out the drawers on one side because they were broken. I also took out the center drawer because it was broken and turned it around to make a shelf.
I added a metal oil drip pan (I think that is what it was), letting it overhang on the backside for seats and beadboard.
I used a board across the bottom, put wheels on it , a wine rack, hooks on one side and chalkboard paint on the other, and painted it red. It was fun to come up with the different components and it sold right away! Go to Jen's site to check out more fabulous make-overs.
