So, I bought this cabinet from a flea market for $5!



I really liked the black paint because it was already sanded down and looked antiqued in a way around the edges, so I opted out of repainting it...Instead I decoupaged over the black and made it a 70s theme from old National Geographic Magazine images....and here is the final outcome! 

Sorry the pics aren't the greatest...


the front


The top


Both sides I did with the ads in the back of the magazines.

I love the front and the top, but I'd spend way too much time reading those ads on the sides!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Luckily they're all torn apart so they are hard to read...but up close, it looks really cool having that small block-like print scattered all over
