Okay those of you that have been following here for awhile now have seen a few different versions of our media cabinet. For those of you who don't remember, here's a quick look back...
This is how it started out - as a bookcase that my parent's bought back in the '70's.
Here I had tried to hide the ugly faux woodgrain on the doors.
When McG won the TV and we needed a cabinet for it, we took off the top hutch part and took off the doors.
Then I added white foam core to the back, to lighten it up and make the tchochkes stand out more.
Back then when I added the foam core, many of you suggested I should have added a color to the backing.
A couple of weeks ago, I found some great wrapping paper on clearance.
I hung onto it for a while, thinking that I would use it to wrap a gift for an upcoming shower, but this week I decided to tweak the media cabinet once again. I emptied the shelves and took out the foam core and wrapped it in this paper.
I put it back in place and added back in the shelves and then stood back to admire. The coral color of the paper reads more of a red inside the cabinet, but I LOVED it!
Then I went around the house and collected up all my owls.
They all have a new home and I am just loving it. A whole new look for just 89 cents!
Gotta love it!!
Are you doing some cheap tweaks at your house - I'd love to hear about them!
