One gal's scrap metal is another's treasure. Katie rescued this tattered radiator cover from a flea market. She primed and painted the entire piece (what a difference paint makes!), then added two shelves inside. She created a walnut veneer base for the bottom, and filled the shelves with some of her favorite things.
Great inspiration here. Now this is set up for a wedding but imagine it scaled down for a dining area. Love the green chairs and take it down to one chandelier. Some mirrors flanked on both sides of a buffet or side table. well you get the idea I am sure.
