I searched for ugly but all I could find was this rather sad icky little medicine cabinet for $5.  No shelves. Horrid little knobs on the false drawer. I also found a cardboard backed cork board for $3. It is pictured with a pretty yellow pillowcase that I thought I would use, but didn't. And those little fruit jars have been waiting in my pantry to be used for something wonderful. I did purchase the contact paper for the inside, but everything else I used was from my stash of treasures.
The outside is all hand painted. I replaced the mirror with the cork board which is covered with scrapbook paper, and the center rectangle is a metal panel that I also covered in paper. The inside of the cabinet is covered in contact paper. On with it then..

 The pic doesn't do it justice, but I love this paper

Really nice choice of colors, paper, etc and the overall concept is just SMART.  Very nicely done.

I am incredibly jealous!  This project is awesome.
(Also, I just clicked the "this rocks" button for the first time..)

I am looking for:
old postage, bottle labels (of any kind), cigar boxes, stuff written in other languages (ie newspapers), letters in any language, old pictures, bottle caps, wine corks, old paper currency, scraps of craft paper, etc...
