Welcome to my first ever “Makeover Monday” (We will see if this sticks.)
Regardless, I have a lot of projects that I didn’t have the foresight to document the process. These projects have been hidden away in a folder in the deep recesses of a desktop folder. But maybe, just maybe they will spark some of your own ideas.
The left behind this huge ugly hutch. I am assuming it was apart of a buffet table in it’s former glory. We kept it in the garage for a while, for fear that maybe the previous owners were planning on retrieving it. BUT, it was taking up so much space! Finally, I started ripping it apart so I could more easily dispose of it… LIGHT BULB.
Instead of trashing it, I came up with a new destiny for the scrap pieces. It was destined to become the kids toy bin! So I got to work. It was a little tedious piecing it all together but, I love the look that it created!
As you can see it is fairly large, my husband and two children wanted to prove it. ( Watching attempt to get out, made all time making it, totally worth it!
Over time I realized that I didn’t really love the color, and the kids had a hard time retrieving their toys from the bottom of the crate. So I made a few modifications .
I added a shelf in the mid section. It made it perfect for storing some of the kids bulkier toys, while still being easily accessible.
So what do you think ? Do you have any great renovations, makeovers or flips !? I would love to see them, and maybe we can feature your ideas on a future “Makeover Monday”.
