Bling Blang; storage box makeover

Pin It
So, I have a sob story about my laundry room. I have always wanted one of those beautiful laundry rooms, you know, the kind that make you WANT to do laundry.  Yeah, never happened.  When we built our house my husband insisted on putting the hot water tank, water pump, HVAC, all in that room, I couldn't build it in to make it look nice.  So as if that's not enough, we installed a water softener and filter last week, guess where it is, yup, in my laundry room.  (Heavy sigh).  Anyway, that really has nothing to do with this post, except that when he emptied out a cupboard that was in there, to remove it to make room for the softener, this empty storage box was in there.  I don't need it, but I am my Mother's daughter and cannot throw something out if it could possibly be used by anybody, anywhere. 

I still had one of these little tables.

                       I went looking for a can of paint, and this is what I had, so this is what I used.

          I believe in second chances, so I ask you again, do you see where I'm going with this (Susan)?

I LOVE my Milwaukee drills, just sayin'.  I once again sliced off the edges of the table so they  wouldn't      show on the finished product, then screwed the box to the table.

                                                          Then, I "blinged" it up a little.

                                                     I also sprayed the drawer pull silver.

That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it.
