The CSI Challenge

You guys know of my love for other people's trash and I realized recently that I never showed you this finished project. I also noticed the date on the "before" photo and realized it took right at a year for the piece to get done!

So, here it was . . . right out of the van. So sad, scraped up, gouged, and ugly:

Here it is in KB's big girl room:

New molding around the edges and top, new pulls, no doors, new color, and eyelet covered inserts in the back of the shelves to mix it up a bit. I LOVE IT!

This has worked out perfectly because a site I have grown to love
is focusing on Yard Sale Makeovers this week and so I am linking up with this bit of handy work. Go over and check out what other women around the country are doing. It is inspiring (and will end up in your reader!!).
