I love double duties! -- and Freebies!October 29th, 2010 in member junk
I don't always try to get things for free, it just sort of happens. But I'm glad it does! My friend was trying to throw out her beat up blanket chest, she thought it had seen better days. Well, it had, after living in a house with 7 kids! But I tried to encourage her to keep it and explained that she could put it to good use with a little fixing up. She wanted nothing to do with it, and told me to take it if I wanted, but she was tossing it out. Well...you KNOW what I had to do....
So I brought it back to life and even made it a double duty piece! The black paint hides a lots of the imperfections. I took off the trim, and added casters for a more contemporary look. Borrowing from the sheet music decoupage trend, I used newspaper and dictionary entries to cover the area on the front. So it now serves as extra seating and as a portable home office. Peace!
