Wall Cubbie Cabinet

Found...


 lost and alone on the side of the road...
no backing... no color.... no friends!

Never fear!

A little distressing... 
some awesome graphic fabric on the back... 
some rustys....




and now it is a beautiful cubbie cabinet...
with a new home on my wall!


Want another look? Remove the fabric 
backing and let the beauty of the wall color shine through!
