Furniture Upcycle

"Better Homes and Gardens" website had a great snip-it on how to up-cycle undesirable furniture. The following was my favorite:
Pictures above taken from "Better Homes and Gardens" website. Check out their website for more great furniture upcycling ideas
If you don't have a cabinet similar to the above I'm sure you've seen one on the curb with a big "FREE" sign taped to the front.
I love the above make over. In the after picture, the cabinet is shown in a laundry room. That's a great idea but I can't help but to picture this in a nursery. Wouldn't it be adorble with cute little baby outfits hanging, bright baskets holding diapers, a lazy susan stocked with lotions, and fuzzy blankets folded at the bottom?
I decided to take that idea one step further. I found a few baby nursery items on Etsy to fill the shelves of this great cabinet redesign.
UPPER LEFT: One XLarge Comfy Fabric Storage Bin with Handles. 58 Fabric Choices $27.99
UPPER RIGHT: diaper cover retro ZOO cream Available in S, M, LMIDDLE $15.00
MIDDLE: Baby Stroller Blanket - Lemongrass, red and navy. $300.00
LOWER LEFT: Small giclee crab print (item No. P-2008-7) $29.00
LOWER MIDDLE: Let's Go to The Zoo Burp Cloth $6.00
LOWER RIGHT: Farm Alphabet Wooden Baby Blocks - set of 13 with drawstring bag $32.00

Thank you for reading the Happy Day Vintage Blog
Have a Happy Day!

  7. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to
    my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
