In the mood for a make-over??

I interrupt my last few boring posts to give you a FANTASTIC MAKE-OVER!! Are you ready for this one???? I found this little cupboard on my buying trip . It stands about 24 inches tall and is about 16 inches wide. It is made very well, nice and sturdy~ a great piece to start with. As soon as I saw it , I pictured the result in my head......................
I remembered this piece of tin that I had in my "stash of things to to something wonderful with later when I found the right thing" ...well I found the right thing and this is how it turned out........

TA-DA!! I am lovin this!! Mr. OTM cut the tin and inserted it for me while I painted it and then I sanded and stained it up tonight and FELL ~IN~LOVE. Ran to get the camera because 1.) You all deserve a great post after all my boring ones and 2.) You have all wanted to see some of my goodies from the buying trip (more to come) and 3.) I love make-over posts!! So get busy girls!

You'll find this prim beauty at the shop! It's headed there tomorrow!!

That is amazing! Love it. I see on your sidebar that you have Crossroads candles for sale. We got a sample at the Atlanta Gift Mart. We sell other things from them, but I am trying to convince my boss to order them. Their top selling scent is Buttered Maple Syrup and after burning it, I can totally see why!

Okay...First... I want to find a piece like that! Second...I want a little warmer weather so I can go out to my shop and do a makeover. Third...I love how that cabinet turned out! It looks like something you would find in a fine prim shop for gobs of $$$$.
Great makeover!
