A Diamond in the Rough

Here is the lucky little guy that got to be transformed into a gorgeous piece of work... full of purpose and looks! Rough I know...but worth it!


Picked him up on the side of the road...for some reason they didn't want him anymore :/

Tore him apart from top to bottom and reinforced his stability...


Enclosed the 2 middle drawers(which were broken)perfect for storage, and added some great new cup pulls. Topped him off with a butcher block top!


Covered him with bead board, and gave him a few coats of Behrs' "Cotton Whisper"


Some cute little hooks, for hand towels and such?


Draped him with some amazing fabric, hung from a tension rod!


Isn't he perfect for any kitchen! I can't wait to find him a new home :)
I'm gointg to be joing Debbie over at Debbie doos! for her newbie party every Monday! Come on over...check it out!
