Not Reallly Trash to Treasure! (photo)

Bought this little metal cabinet (probably from a medical office) the other day. The stainless steel top cleaned up like crazy and, with a coat of paint, it's just what I needed for towel storage in my bathroom!

Total cost? $15 = 2 cans of paint= Priceless! LOL

I couldn't have bought anything for that little an amount and liked it nearly as well.

Anybody junkin', or is it too cold, like it is here?

Too cold here still. The temps haven't been above 30 in weeks.

Know what you mean. I bought this cabinet several weeks ago and then we had to wait until we finally had a warm enough day for the paint to go on evenly and dry. (Arkansas weather - ya gotta love it!)

Ya Ya, I love your cabinet. I have one in my bathroom painted white with a porcelain top. It holds all the doggie bath towels and their shampoo by the clawfoot bathtub.

My doors are split down the middle and there is a drawer at the top.

I hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine.
