I am in the process of making my office a better reflection of who I am. Lucky me. I work where I have the opportunity to make where I work look like home. I spend more waking hours of the day here than I do at home most days.
I need a table for my printer to sit on. It needs to be narrow and have storage for printer supplies inside. I happened to have had the exact piece I needed in the garage just waiting for inspiration. It was designed to be a wall cabinet of a 1980’s Ethan Allen entertainment center. I bought it as a part a set I bought for $70.00 a while back. Two of the base sections are now my master bedroom side tables.
The wall cabinet that was also part of the set is smaller and more narrow. It was just too short to work for a table.
Fortunately I remembered some legs I bought at the ReStore garage sale last year. I bought 8 brand new legs for $2.00. They sort of had a mid-century look about them and I thought they would be perfect for the printer table.
Attaching them was easy with the brackets included.
I used Rusteoleum Seaside to paint the side table.
The table is going to go on a wood wall when all is said and done so I wanted to show you how pretty it looks up against my reclaimed wood door.
The office is almost ready for me to show off.
I hope this inspires you to think outside the box when it comes to remaking items.
Have a great day!

I truly appreciate this blog article.Really thank you! Will read on…
Thankfully, as a student I never made it to the principals office. However, I have a pretty good idea of how they looked, and nothing as fun and inspirational as yours. The cabinet idea looks great with the wood behind it. I think my favorite is the luggage/shelf. The rusteoleum seaside paint that you used is that from a spray can?
Yes, it is my favorite turquoise canned spray paint. The only problem is that it is glossy. That means that every imperfection shows.
