Kid's room redo...from trash to fabulous!

I always excited when I found new 'trash'! I see 'trash' as an opportunity to 'craft' n 'create' and the best thing is...it's costless! Hmm..may be not absolutely costless...below projects do cost me to skip a nap time! See what I did today!
a display 'board' for Jojo reading corner
BEFORE #2 - A wooden cabinet door
After #3 - A notice clipboard for Jojo study desk
BEFORE #3 A study desk with cabinet top

Yes.  I dismantle the top cabinet and convert it into a side cabinet to create more space.
The cabinet was 'uplifted' with a frame from 2 wooden crates and cut of board.


Sorry!  I didn't prepare the tutorial for this post,
but I believe you could have guess how I did it!
Today, I turn 2 trash into precious 
and recreate a new set of study set for Jojo!
And I feel WOW!


Too tired... need to get back to 
the housework I abandoned postponed due 
to this project!!  See you!

I have create a facebook page for MeiJo's JOY,
feel free to upload your projects there!
All are welcome!
