New life to old cabinet

I found a perfect small hutch at the thrift store for my daughter in law yesterday. It fits perfectly into her dining area for a cute extra pantry. She loves animal print, so look what a did. Tacked leftover leopard print fabric into the frame around the inside of the glass panels.....so nobody can see inside ugly pantry storage area. I think it turned out perfectly and I made it a total surprise for her when she got home from work! I told her if she DIDNT like it, I would take it. So far, she seems to like it. The pull out drawer was made into a "junk" drawer, and the bottom storage is still open for whatever she chooses! How fun!

Great idea! There is no such thing as too much storage room, one can always use more.......and this is so stylish too!

Hi Julie,
A nice touch. That is a beautiful cabinet. That can be put in any room and painted too. Great find. I need to get out a look at my local thrift stores. I have some need for a few items.
Hope you and the family are doing well and keeping cool with the summer weather. Here is So. California, still hot and humid. It's been that way since June. Fall is just around the corner. Have a wonderful day.
Blessings,
Bobbie Lynn
