Repurposed dresser and cup shelf
I have a lovely teacup collection that has been stored in a box in the garage for 5 years. I have a living room with no furniture in it, and no space in the dining room for a table... So I had an idea to somehow make a dining room out of the living room... I could take this $5 dresser I bought at my favorite thrift store, and somehow create a space to display some of my teacups. and then scrounge around and see what else I could come up with to make a dining room.
I puttied the holes in the dresser top and drawer fronts and had Zack sand the whole things down with a sander. Then guess what I did? Yep... painted it white... and spray painted the oxidixed bubbled up silver metal knobs blue... Joke all you want family members, but it looks very cool now....
I found this oak cupshelf I have had for years in the back of the garage... pulled it out and painted it white too... and Ta-Da... a great teacup display and place to store all my tea party goods. Napkins, teaspoons and strainers, tablecloths and linens, candlesticks and more are stored in the dresser drawers. Now when I have my OC art sister friends over for art day, I have a place to store all my tea party stuff! I LOVE the flea market style!
