BHG - Salvage a Media Cart To turn an old castoff into a charming bedside table, start by removing the casters and replacing them with new wooden furniture feet. Prime and paint the cart. Remove the doors and decoupage the fronts with decorative paper. Cut a new back for the cart from 1-inch plywood and decoupage it with coordinating paper. Add new knobs to the doors and reinstall.

Repurpose TV Trays Reimagine these former workhorses as modern artwork with trendy silhouettes. After priming and painting the trays to match your decor, print a decorative pattern onto magnetic paper using an ink-jet printer. Trace interesting shapes onto the magnetic paper, cut them out with scissors, and place the designs on the metal trays.
Cut Molding: After sketching a pattern, cut screen molding to size. Attach painted pieces using wood glue. Add trim nails to hold the pieces in place. Add Beads: Use craft glue to temporarily adhere glass beads to the top of the cabinet. Glaze the Top: Follow manufacturer's instructions for applying epoxy over the beads. For finished edges, use painter's tape as a mold. When dry, use a palm sander with fine-grit paper to sand the edges. Clean the entire surface & edges w/ alcohol on soft cloth
