I'd been searching around for nice storage for my dorm room all summer, but hadn't really found anything I liked enough to spend my money on. I was at the charity store the other day when I spotted an unloved little number that I was itching to transform. So I snapped it up for 3!



Gah!

I spent the last couple of days giving it a little love and here's how:



This is the final result!





I'm thrilled! You can see more on my blog.

Thanks for looking - C&C welcome(:

Oooooo I like it. I have an end table with a magazine rack in the bottom of it that looks like your original piece. I may have to steal your idea and make it match my new entertainment center I just made. Smiley
