Every now and then, I experience a bit of what I call "DIY serendipity," and it always makes me smile. That was definitely the case in my new drink stand.
If you saw my kitchen island makeover, you know that I removed a section of cupboard and had U-Line beverage center installed. I love the new island, but I was left with the guts of the cabinet, such as this drawer:
As I pondered what to do with the drawer, I discovered that the hardware was simple to remove. And I had plenty of green paint left over from painting my kitchen island. Hmmm. . .
Too big, really, to use as a tray, but I thought there must be something I could do with it. Then I remembered that I had a pair of folding legs left over from another project. They were in poor shape, but I just wiped some Restor-a-Finish over them and they were good as new. And
A handy, completely portable drink stand! It reminds me of a campaign desk. It's easy to store and to move because the top comes off and the legs fold up when not in use. And the best part? It cost me nothing but a little time and imagination!
Now, who would like to come sit on the porch and have a cold drink with me?
Do you ever have moments of DIY serendipity? What have you made lately?
