Ever since I found this little cabinet being tossed out in the dumpster last summer I've been wanting to give it a crazy makeover. The best thing about free furniture is that you can go a little wild : )
All I needed for this project was the cabinet and a Sharpie paint pen with a medium tip. Since I use the cabinet to display books, I thought it would be really fun to graffiti poems and passages from favorite novels all over the front, top, and sides of the piece.
I removed all the books, dusted the cabinet so I would have a perfectly clean surface, and turned it on it's side so I would be able to write comfortably.
Then I roughly planned out what would be written where and got to work!
This piece adds tons of personality to my living room - when you see it you know that a very interesting person lives here : )
I'm thrilled with the way it turned out!
