$5.00 Makeover Part II

I've completed a second piece of furniture that I found at the neighborhood sale a few weeks back (Yay Me!). It is a sturdy, height-challanged corner cabinet.  It was DIRTY! I think it had been stored in the garage for several years. The best part is that I only paid $5.00!

Here is the before:

I sanded the top down thinking that I would stain it but the wood wasn't the prettest so I decided to just paint the whole thing. I painted it my standard black using a short roller brush on most of it and my angled 2" brush where the roller wouldn't reach! It went really fast which is good because I still have 3 more $5.00 makeovers to complete!

I didn't notice until after painting it that the knobs do not exaclty match up with each other!

My oldest Daughter will be using it in the bedroom of her tiny apartment to hold a tv and dvd player. (Well, she will be as soon as I find a good price on a used tv! Time to go to more yard sales!) 

Thanks for visiting!!!
