thrifty additions to my crafting space

I've been busy. 
Turning this...

into this...

and this...

into this...

They are the perfect additions to my crafting room and for a combined total purchase of price of $54.98, they are a bargain at 10 times the price. 
Yup, you read that correctly. 
The chair was $19.99 and the dresser- turned- scrapbooking- supply- storage unit was $34.99 at a local thrift store. 

Sure, they were both in less than optimal condition when I bought them, and if we're being honest, the chair smelled pretty awful, but with a little elbow grease, a staple gun, some paint and some febreeze, I was able to turn them into the perfect affordable additions to my room. 

My favorite part?
Once I removed the drawers and knocked out the middle bar of the middle area, my paper storage cubes fit in perfectly! 

It's coming along so nicely.
I can't wait to get up to my elbows in paper and glue and tackle the 12 unopened studio calico kits I have lingering around (that's just embarrassing ;-) ) 

I feel a scrapbooking day coming on!
