A little paint and a set of legs from Home Depot gave this ugly filing cabinet a whole new look (and a place of honor in the office!)

Galvanized Buckets

We turned a cheap galvanized ice bucket into an oatmeal container and a larger bucket into a fun drink station with BB Frösch and a bright happy shade of blue.

Old-School Lockers

We snagged a beat-up set of lockers from the employee break-room of a store that was going out of business (score!) then turned them into fun storage by painting them to match the rest of the playroom.

Old Metal Clock

This metal clock was the perfect size and shape, but completely the wrong style. We updated it to go in my daughter’s bedroom with the help of just the right paint colors and BB Frösch.
