The screen made from more old cabinet doors, and some hen box organizers were made from a piece of thrift store junk. The white table was a found piece.
All it needed was stain and a little paint.
This table looked like it might be beyond hope.
Replacing the top and painting the base made it look like a different table.
Revamped kitchen cabinets and some old gray drawers~both were free!
A chicken feeder holds ribbons. 
An old doorknob and faceplate holds back the curtains in the room. 
A $2 shop light tops it off.

When our daughter moved out, I wanted to use her room as a craft room. Working with a very stringent budget, I made this room into functional space. It's the "junkiest" room in the house!
