Transformation

A month or so ago, before we moved into our home, I went antique shopping and found
a round pedestal table for the breakfast area, and this unique cabinet. I usually have to see something "finished" to see the potential, but this time I just knew that this porcelain topped cabinet (as shabby as it was) needed to find a home in my home.
Here is the finished product.
I am just a little proud of myself since this is not my usual area of giftedness.
I'm not sure how David feels about the red paint residue in our garage, but as always, he is a very patient man and helped put all the pieces back together to make the finished
"Shabby Chic" antique.
We're going to use it as the TV stand in the basement.
The black door is a chalkboard and will be used to write messages of welcome to our guests.
