Great right? Well, the problem was that I was left with a giant piece of wood furniture that wasn't worth a whole lot, but was too nice to throw away. At the same time I had been looking around for a bench for my entry so we would have somewhere to store shoes, hats, gloves, etc. Basically I needed a mud room.
Light bulb! What if, I thought to myself, I could find a way to turn the TV cart into a bench. Sure it's a little high, but this would be a great way to recycle that new/old piece of furniture. Turns out I was actually right about this one.
Can you tell I'm pretty proud of myself? For about 50 dollars I was able to have a cushion made by a lovely designer at etsy, and voila! I now have my mud room. Even better I found a place for those pillows that no longer match our new rug.
Now that's what I call recycling!
