Repurposing a CD Box

At Pondered Primed Perfected, Sherry had this plain, wooden CD box that had been sitting around her house for a while.  It wasn’t getting much use as a CD holder anymore, so she decided it was time to give it a new job.

Painted black with a favorite saying on front and the addition of some rusty hinges for character, the box now sits in Sherry’s kitchen window and holds her live wheatgrass.  It’s the perfect size for the space and the bright green wheatgrass looks great against the slightly distressed black box.

Kitchen Storage Cabinet

Megan from Meg and Mum’s bought this stinky, rundown 1930-1940’s era kitchen dresser a while back for only $50. It had been used for garage storage by the gentleman they purchased it from for years with the intention of eventually restoring it. It was pretty grimy to say the least.

Megan scraped off the paint and sanded the dresser before her hubs took over with the painting. With a few new pieces, including side panels, backing, and hardware, the dresser has been given new life and now sits proudly in Megan’s home. I’d say the transformation is quite miraculous! The cabinet went from a scuzzy eyesore to a stylin’ storage unit.
