This is the story of a little cupboard I picked up for 4.99. The before picture is terrible but you get the idea that this little piece was stained and varnished not too impressive.
I thought that this piece was handmade and it was confirmed when I flipped it over and saw the date 1947! So cool. I encourage you to not be turned off by plywood furniture it paints up very well and you hardly notice that it is plywood as you will see in the photos to follow.
See what I mean stained varnish good-bye new painted finish everyday all day long I love you! This cupboard would be a great catch all in a breezeway or a good place to stash some cheap paperback novels. Never underestimate the power of paint!
