In the "green box", I found a load of very dirty, moldy, water damaged, broken furniture. This small sideboard was in the best shape and I brought it home with me.
The top was covered in a plastic vinyl contact shelf paper. The bottom was gone; the back was gone; the veneer was shot, there were no doors.
So, my crafty guy made a new back and floor, and new doors; using several parts from some other broken pieces of furniture. I gave it a coat of chalk paint, and she looks like a whole different piece.
(sorry for the rubbishy photo)
Don't send things to the landfill! There is always hope. :)
