M is for Makeover



 With my ~growing~ love for sewing, I am accumulating a lot of fabric & accessories! Recently I've been looking for a place to keep all my new supplies.  A couple of weeks ago I was over a family members house & they were about to throw this away...so I asked if I could keep it?!?
As you can see it was in need of a serious makeover...
1st I scrubbed it clean
Then I put a coat of gripper on it . . .


I gave all the hardware a shiny new coat of silver paint


Then I lined each drawer & organized my supplies:)

Super cute and what a good idea! I am getting into sewing a lot too and really need to find someplace in my house so I can do more without moving things around all the time!

Love it Love it Love it. Definitely going to do something like this to my file cabinet. I also got it second hand and it needs a facelift!
