Here’s a great Fab Furniture Friday project that will inspire you to either try something similar or to call a travel agent and book a vacation – or both! Kristine at The Painted Hive found this beat-up cabinet in a gutter:
And turned it into this piece of gorgeousness.
But wait – here’s the best part. The wood on the top had been sanded within an inch of its life, complete with exposed veneer and gouge marks.
Kristine came up with the idea to use wrapping paper to cover the damaged wood. Sometimes problem solving leads to the best & most creative ideas :-) Check this out:
How cool is that?! The map adds so much character, and really makes this cabinet unique.
And the perfect little finishing detail – Kristine created these awesome compass knobs.

If you have a piece of furniture that you’ve built, repaired, refinished, repurposed, reinvented, or otherwise done something fabulous to, send me some pictures and the story behind it, and I’ll feature it in a future Fab Furniture Friday post.
