Before and After: Cute Painted Shelving Unit

Today I have a little project that I picked up locally and gave a really simple makeover.  I don't really even know what to call this thing so I am going with a shelving unit...

I gave it a clean and the off white paint treatment, and here it is now

I thought about chopping the top 'guard rails' off but I am glad I didn't.

Doesn't EVERYTHING look better with white paint on it?

I lined the drawer with some vintage-looking scrapbook paper and sealed it with PVA Glue (my version of Mod-Podge and much much cheaper!)

This shelving unit would make a cute bedside table I think.

This piece sold at last month's Laurieton market.
