Craigslist Before and After

I scoured Craigslist a few weeks back for some larger items.  One lady was unloading a ton of stuff and I took a few pieces off her hands.

It was a unique piece that had potential.  We decided no one would hang clothes behind the door, so Hubby made a shelf to make it more usable.

It was a bit beat up in spots, so wood filler was applied.

I keep picturing this piece in an office.  It offers tons of storage and doesn’t look too office-like.
I kept the original hardware.  The paint is ASCP in Louis Blue with some touches of dark wax and a light distressing.
I will share soon where this baby is going.
Have a great Monday!

You've got the best eye for bargains. I would have walked straight past it in its original state and now it looks amazing!

Wow! I wouldn't have touched that with a ten foot pole, but I'm glad that you did. The restyle is fabulous :)
