This sweet cupboard was saved from a local garage sale with the intention of turning it into some more storage space for my office. It was perfect because it has 2 deep shelves with plenty of rooms to store some of my craft supplies. Sharing my Up Cycled Love Create Inspired Cupboard and an easy way to transfer words onto furniture to give it some unique character.

  • No3 Round Brush
  • Wax
  • Sander and 120 grit sand paper
