For ‘Fess up Friday I told you all how I had “ghettofied” my old tv stand. After a few comments about it, I decided I would show you all my frugal fudge-up. You are welcome to LOL with me if you’d like. This is an example of where “frugal” becomes “CHEAP”. It’s okay, I realize my problem and I am working on it. 🙂
Here is the before picture. I hated how tall it was, and the fake press board wood plastic sticker stuff (how’s that for technicality?) got STICKY. It was so gross; no matter what I did I couldn’t keep it clean. Plus, the top was a nice little dust trap. And I hate dusting!
And here’s the picture after I massacred it with my handy dandy jigsaw. Yeah. My reasoning was that I was going to give it away anyway, so why not try to make it into a piece of furniture we may like? If it’s really bad (like it is) then we can just get rid of it.
And here’s the worst part. I guess I could get some fake wood sticker stuff like you line your cabinets with, but I think I’m just going to keep scouting the thrift stores. I think I’m going to stay away from furniture renovations for awhile!
