What? It doesn’t look like a media cabinet to you? You aren’t in love with the dingy green felt backing? Or the cobwebs or the hornet’s nest that was hiding in one corner? You aren’t alone. Hubby felt the same way. Well, I didn’t let all that stop me.
I cleaned the thing really well, ripped off the felt backing, and brought it inside. One end was finished off, but the other end looked like it was missing a piece:
So I cut a 1×12 down to the right width and length and used wood glue and nails to attach it. I also added a 1×12 to the top to make it look finished.
Everything got a light sanding and some wood putty. Then I mixed up half a quart of leftover gray paint with half a quart of cream paint and went to town.
Added the adjustable shelves back in, and voila! Media cabinet! From something I found in my garage! And it cost me absolutely nothing since I used supplies I had laying around.
I love it! I love it even more because I didn’t spend a dime on it. Cheapskate thrills, you know. I’m doing a happy dance right now.
Can you believe it? I mean, seriously, look at the before and after pics, folks! Talk about trash to treasure!
