Ugly Duckling to Beautiful Swan!!!

whimzymeFebruary 13, 2006

Last summer my husband and I hit the motherlode at a school auction....shelves, storage chests, tables...we even scored a drafting table and a card catelog. Anyway, the first project is finally done. We turned an ugly brown storage cabinet into an armoire for our bedroom. Here are some before and after photos.

njtomboy, I don't mind you linking my thread to HGTV...actually, I was thrilled to have it on the HGTV message board. I was disappointed though that I couldn't find it. I hadn't looked at this thread for quite some time so it was in June that you linked it...I'm not sure how long threads stay active on their message board. Do you know if there is an archive maybe. I haven't really used their board before. I would like to see if there were any responses.
