When I am not baking or crocheting, house projects consume the creative corners of my mind. I am all about sprucing up on a dime and LOVE the fellow bloggers out there who are as devoted to this mindset as I. They are an endless source of inspiration. This project is one that I completed a year or so ago - but I have been planning it in my head for about 14 years. Ever since HGTV came into my life and taught me that I can do it too!
We were in need of an ottoman/coffee table/storage, and I loved this one from Crate & Barrel.
So, I knew if I could find a pre-assembled frame, I would be off to the races. I started a search with ReStore (the Habitat for Humanity store for salvaged and donated materials), but scored on Craig's with a listing from a local thrift store. They were selling salvaged kitchen cabinets and I found one similar in shape to this one. I think mine is a little deeper, but you get the gist. Tip: get a real wood cabinet - it will hold up much longer than manufactured wood products.
Until next time!
