Re-furbishing an old Microwave Stand
Thirteen years ago my exes father made us a microwave stand for our kitchen. It was either made for us or given to us by his sister. When we split up I inherited that piece of furniture and it has moved with me to every house I have lived in. Three years ago it ceased to be a microwave stand and became a counter top and junk drawer where all the junk got tossed. It was becoming an eye sore and hard to keep clean. I am sure many of you know that most stuff that ends up in junk drawers is stuff that you think,"Oh, I'll get to that later." or "Oh this will be a good place to keep this for now." If not well now you know my train of thought.
Next I went to Walmart and bought a sash rod for $3.67 to hang a new curtain on. Then I bought a tie up curtain for $10. I took this home and put it on the front of the stand and now I have a pretty new mini buffet table in my dining room!!!
So for $14 dollars I got a great piece for my dining room and I will get a few more years out of this piece before I send it off with Chandler to University!!!
