Dry sinks - before & after

https://www.facebook.com/SavvyUpcycleTreasure/posts/1004516722895877


So with this pair of dry sinks I found at a thrift store, I had no clue what to do with them: paint them both different colors, add legs, cut off the towel bars?  I decided to make them look like a matching pair of bed side tables/nightstands.

Wowza!  I love how this one turned out!!! I was originally going to paint it all cream, then changes my mind to paint the drawers coral.  Well as I was painting the drawers coral I decided to add the stencil to the drawers.  I actually had to do it twice, the first stencil didn't turn out so I redid it.  I added some fancy new hardware too!















Old door to fun door shelf

For the past year I've been hoping to make a door into a shelf, last week I finally was able to get one done. Usually they have the shelves in the corners but I cut the door wrong & it wouldn't have fit with the corner shelves. So I improvised & I think it turned out great...you can actually fit more

stuff on the shelves this way rather the the corner shelves so it worked out perfectly:)

I knew exactly what I was going to do with this dresser even before I picked it up from the lady who I bought it from:)
A LOT of sanding but it turned out beautifully!

before & after hutch

 My most recent project is this hutch. I had it sitting in my garage for over a year because I didn't know if I should get all creative with it or just a simple coat of paint.  I obviously opted for the simple cream color with distressed edges.
