thrift store chic

I am cheap. I like shopping used stores. I also like making ugly things look nice. Being cheap comes in handy for both of these hobbies. With this particular project I found a plain organizer with drawers. It was made out of cardboard. After making sure that it was durable and that the drawers opened and shut with ease, I bought it at a discounted amount of a buck. I then used some contact paper that I previously bought at target, and spent a lot of time that would have been put to better use doing any number of things that I actually need to do---and this is the result: Next up is this interesting little file folder that looks like Hollywood's idea of the 1940's...or maybe the 1980's. The "Rachel is stalling so she doesn't have to do the things she should be doing" version: These two make quite the pair, don't they? Transformed....hee hee hee...sorry--I guess I am bragging a bit,but look...they turned out so good...I really can't believe that they are this neato. Yes...I used the word neato. I'll shut up now.


  1. Dude, if that were at Target I totally would've bought it. I had no idea you were so crafty! Learn something new every day :)

  2. That is seriously awesome. I love the paper your chose.. it looke professionally done!

  3. Wow. Look at Martha Stuart! You are fabulous! Not only will you be organized, but you'll be stylish!
