Just a Fixer-Upper today

5:25:00 PM

I was working in the basement today on several projects that will go into my new office/craft room...
when I found this piece in the corner of the basement...
It was a little dirty, and had no door insert....
(sorry about the dark pictures... basement photography)
(that's a Santa fish in the corner)
I decided to take on the challenge...

 The paint was good, needed a little touching up but I'll worry about that later...
 The first thing to tackle was the missing door panel. 
I cut a piece of wood the size I needed, and then cut
a piece of batting the size of the wood.
(the batting was actually a recycled piece of an ironing board cover... free!)
Then I cut a piece of painters drop cloth a little larger than the board.
 ...and stapled it all the way around.
 ... then I trimmed the fabric closer to the staples.
 Next I stapled some ribbon to the back and wrapped around a few pieces to hold photos.
 Then I cut a piece of fabric to use as a liner to cover the back of the wood and the staples. I used the extra ribbon and hot glued it around the rough edges of the fabric.
 Then I put the panel into the door and added new knobs to the door and the drawer below.
I think I need more ribbon!
 I think this will make a great piece in the office to hold supplies.
More ribbon added :)
Love it!
I'm really happy with the way it turned out and it
was free, free, free!
