This, (shiver) was a hideous, always dusty, rust tinted bookshelf that hid in our old house in a storage room– where G stored all his (for some odd reason also dusty) music binders and old school books.
After we moved, I brought her up from the work room in the basement where all kinds of hideous goodies await the day when my gifted hands (joke, people) can give them a second chance at enjoying life.
This was one of the first projects that got brought up…
… to be reincarnated as a coffee bar/buffet!!
She (because now I can speak of her with respect) was painted black witht he glossiest black I could find. I used Krylon`s little can which was $14 or so. She took up 3/4 of the can.
I thought it quite worth the $$.
I know the photos are not TOP NOTCH but they still share the story.
I LOVE casters.
And I LOVE attaching them to things.
Love, LOVE, LOVE.
I love how she rolls around the house so easily now, just wherever I need her most.
She has served me for 3 parties now. Usually she holds a butler of coffee, cream and sugar, candles, glass mugs, iced water. And I put either plastic cups or ice in the silver bin thing.
We`ve have made some great memories together so far.
