Play Stove Makeover

Living in Utah, the land of the big families, yard sales are knee deep in discarded toys. When I saw this wood play stove I just had to have it. Fortunately it met me five dollar price point too.



I already took the doors off in this before picture (sorry) but as you can see, it had seen a lot of hard use.

After sanding it I Mod Podged some of my kitchen fabric to the doors, painted the hardware brushed nickel (it was dark brass) added new nobs and painted the whole thing turquoise.


Now I have a cute little storage piece for remotes, DVDs, coasters, kleenex - all the stuff that accumulates in the living room.



P.S. I'm going to add some legs to it as soon as I find something I love.

Brilliant idea (again!) I would never, ever, ever have thought of doing that! Looks so good and so far away from what it was originally too!

Oh great! love this project Nicole.
I just rescue a dining table and chairs from the garbage of my building, re-vamped and painted them with a similar color but, i did not take pictures buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.

Well done, super cool Nicole

This is so cute! I love it. If we had more room, I'd start thrifting for my own to re-do :)
