Mary Kay Hutch Makeover

Today’s Transformation Tuesday makeover comes from a reader who is in a different type of makeover business; she does beauty makeovers. Shauna is a regular reader of the Trash to Treasure blog, and she sent me a link to photos of her project. She needed some sort of cabinet just for her Mary Kay business supplies, so she set out for her local thrift store hoping and praying she would find just the right thing.

Wouldn’t you know it, she did find just the right thing and right in her price range. Of course it needed some trash to treasure TLC, but she knew that was no obstacle when the price was perfect at just $20.

Shauna’s hutch started out like this.

I think the wear on the drawer was just a little more trash than treasure for Shauna’s taste. So she got to work. She sanded and prepped…

This is how it looked after her husband helped her sand it a little.

Of course, she chose a color that would set off her business supplies perfectly. Mary Kay is all about pink, so why not paint the cabinet pink?

After all that work, it turned out really cute.

I think the black trim really adds something. Shuana splurged a little on the new hardware, but in my opinion, it’s worth it.

All said, this project was under $50 with the paint, hutch, and hardware. Thanks for sharing your great project Shauna. We love it!

For all of my readers, if you have T2T projects and don’t have your own blog or website, I’d love to feature your project for you. Just drop me an e-mail and tell me what trash to treasure transformation project has you just itching to share it with someone.
