Good Questions: What Can I Do with This Piece?

Chicago

Janine says: 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!! - Janine

Dear Janine,

We think a couple coats of shiny white would turn this into something totally new. You may want to consider removing the glass doors as well, to see if an open case inspires some fresh ideas of how to put this piece to use.

AT readers, let Janine know what you think....
