30 minutes and a $1.99

There once was a cute little white cabinet. Nothing too fancy pants about it.

It sat in storage for a while knowing that it would someday find a home in the old house. Maybe a bathroom, maybe a laundry room. Much potential but a little plain Jane.

The day comes. The plain little cabinet with hang in the powder room. However plain just won’t work

Not knowing exactly what I wanted it to look like. It was clean. It was painted fresh.  I let it sit empty. It would come to me.


Walking through Walmart. A glance down down fabric aisle. Can’t hurt to look right?

And there it is. You know when you know it. The right color. The right print. It was  like the lightbulb moment right?

Pick it up

Get it cut.

Look at the sticker

$1.99!!! Go me!!!

Perfect and cheap. My kind of purchase.

I need  something to wrap the fabric around so I think about foam board. Gotta love Walmart, one stop shop. $2.50 for a piece of foam board. Don’t think so. It a $1.00 at dollar tree. No time for  Dollar Tree today.

Now that I have the fabric, I just want to get it done. No time for the Dollar Tree so the next best thing is to hunt through the hoard. Bam, cardboard. Free. Yes.

Measure.     Cut.     Repeat x 3.

So pretty.

Now all I need is to put stuff in it.


So find yourself something that just needs a little pick me up and get busy. Easy Peasey.
