B&A Friday

Sorry ladies and some gents... I've been a little MIA this week, well for a couple weeks now.  I've just been a little preoccupied, you all know how that goes.  I do plan to get back in the swing of things soon.  I plan to make a trip up to my favorite thrift store next week, and hopefully come home with a great new/old piece.
So, on to the GREAT before/after for the day.
This comes from Maple & Magnolia
 Here's her story....
I scored an awesome Stanley brand Armoire for a mere $25 on kijiji. Booyah.
Pretty sure I couldn’t go to Wal-Mart and buy a laminate cabinet for that price.
Well, maybe it wasn’t completely awesome but it had great potential.
Here are some before shots.

It had a bad paint job, tons of flowers and cheesy stenciling.  Not my thang.  So I painted it inside and out in Benjamin Moore Pike’s Peak Gray. And glazed it in Benjamin Moore Wolf Gray.  It was supposed to go in my craft room but it was too stinkin heavy to make it up the stairs. So it’s now in our foyer which is actually pretty convenient.

I replaced the missing shelf and then added a pegboard and a bulletin board to the inside of the doors.
I used containers from Dollarama to organize all my supplies. There was even a spot for my Cricut machine!

This is one of my favorite furniture make overs of all time.  I could really use something like this, my crafts are scattered all over the room.  I'm totally inspired, how about you??
Have a great weekend :)


  1. WOW! I am in love with this piece!!

  2. It's so amazing and you bet I could use one just like it!

  3. What a wonderful makeover. I could surely use a piece like this to get myself more organized. It's a nice touch adding the paper to the inside of the bottom doors.
