My goodwill hutch

My trip to Goodwill scored this cute little hutch - $39- I did the happy little bargain dance and quietly tore the tag off and skipped to the cashier!  This was not in pristine condition but I've seen worse.  Both sides had peeling veneer and my idea was to use beadboard to cover up the ugly!  On my hunt, I stumbled upon paintable "tin ceiling" wallpaper - BINGO- I found the perfect solution. I measured it, cut it, spray adhesived it.  I gave the whole piece a few coats of  satin black spraypaint.  I added crystal knobs and it's ready for its premiere!  At least, it's ready for a Christmas collection or two!  Well, gotta fly!
