Show and Tell

A couple weeks ago I showed you a make over in my side entry. There were a couple things that I wasn't happy with so I had to make some more changes.I didn't like the crate but I couldn't find what I wanted that would fit. I had an old TV stand that was in pieces so I got out my circular saw and started cutting. Then I got some black paint and this is what I came up with. I like it much better and since it didn't cost anything I won't mind getting rid of it when I find that perfect piece.
I also changed to this box in place of the "scoop" with the light. I like this much better. I just wish the cord didn't show so much. I love the lights but the battery ones don't last at all.
I wasn't really looking for something for this space but I thought this would be perfect and it was. I just added some
Sweet Annie and a spray of berries. Now I'm satisfied with this room.
Thanks for stopping by. For more show and tell posts go visit Kelli's House.

I like how you decorated by making do with what you had on hand!
You ought to be a homesteader with that attitude!
Your creations turned out great!

I bought my own circular saw last year. We are women, hear us roar! Nice job, why spend more money when that re-do on the stand works so nicely?

Love the shelf by the light. Have you thought of painting the cord the same color as the wall? It wouldn't show up as much then.
