Creative Recycling at Home

I'm a huge fan of before and after design projects, especially since I love to scour Craig's list, Ebay and local antique shops for the next best find. I finally had a chance to create my own "before and after" which I'm particularly proud of. What makes me even more ecstatic is that one of my favorite inspirational blogs also found it pretty cool! Check out Design Sponge for the scoop and larger pics!

For all you do-it-yourselfers, it took about three hours of sanding, two coats of latex paint, more sanding along the edges for a bit of a distressed finish, and a cut of wrapping paper from Target to line the drawer. I then added the classic Eames chair (more love) and I now have a one-of-a-kind piece that's easy on the eyes and the environment!
