My before and after


I was looking for a TV armoire  and they are so expensive that I thought I would look on craigslist. and guess what I found one for cheap but Boy was it ugly... but for  $40.00 what the heck.... So this is what I did to it.

Wow! HOW did you do it? What did you use to glue to burlap on it? LOVE it!!!

Pamela said...

I was thinking of doing something like this to the inside doors of our armoire since it stays open most of the time. How did you get the burlap to stick??
