Janine sent in an email: I found this at a yard sale last weekend, and although I wasn't convinced it was anything special, I bought it since it was only $5. I figured I could just get rid of it later if nothing could be done with it...

My question: what can I do with it? I realize it's not a quality piece of furniture, but I thought with a coat of paint it might look kinda cool. Am I crazy?

Thanks for any help!!

AT Design Minds, what would you do with this piece? Let Janine know in the comments...
