Storybook Sideboard

A few weeks ago, I found a unique sideboard.
There were several things about it that made it unique, the first of which is that I found it on the side of the road.

If you follow me on instagram, you may remember this find.

It was damaged quite a bit and one of the drawers needed to be fixed.  It had tons of potential though!
Just look at all those great curves!

Then, once I got it home, I found something even more interesting.

There was a note on the back...

It seems I wasn't the first to see the potential in this piece and save it from the trash!  Someone else had done the same thing back in '89.

With all that potential and such a great back story, I had to fix her up!
Since it was such a curvy piece, my mind immediately went to Frenchy, shabby chic, cottage chic, distressed style.

She completely lived up to my dreams!

It's hard to tell in the pictures but the glaze I used is metallic, which gives off a lovely light.

I love that you can take something that was once forgotten and unloved and re-purpose it back to a thing of beauty!

How about you?

Have you found any cast offs to bring back to life?  

I would love to hear about it!

Ikea Lack Hack Round Up

Hi there Glam readers!  
I recently did some design boards for dorm room style and featured the Ikea Lack Side Table.
I used it for a couple of reasons, first of which is that it's so affordable ($9.99).
Secondly, it is easy to pump up the style on this one.
There are several great "hacks" out there, and today I thought it would be fun to round up a few of my favorites to give you some ideas.
LACK Side table IKEA Easy to assemble. Lightweight and easy to move.

This one is done using a kit from Overlays.

DIY Ikea Lack Table Upgrade | Lovely Indeed A way to spruce up the $9.99 end table from Ikea...

I love this one!  It was spruced up with some stain resistant fabric and nail head trim!

I own these tables already and after 6 years they are still standing but so ugly due to water damage and moving dents... def doing this when I redo my bedroom

This on from Amber Interiors is pure genius!

This one was redone with some paint and a Greek key kit from Overlays.

There you have it!  A round up of a few of my favorite Lack hacks!

Have you done an Ikea hack?

I would love to hear about it!
