After finishing a family room downstairs, and the furniture shuffle that followed, I was left without a media cabinet to go under the TV in our living room. I could not believe how much a new cabinet was going to cost, even for an ugly one. So, Bart and I have been on the hunt for a used cabinet that we could redo. A month or so ago, we found this "beauty" at a thrift store for $25! It was in such sad shape, we could tell that it was homemade-but very sturdy, and I loved that it was so plain because I knew I could go in so many different directions with it.
