Microwave Stand

I was at Savers the other day and spotted something with great potential :) just a warning, the before pictures are truly disgusting. Alax and I have been looking for a little something that we could put our microwave on so that we had a little more counter space, so although this was a lot of work, I knew it would be perfect for what we wanted!  At the store it didn't seem to need too much work, but once I got it home I realized how bad it really was..It kind of grosses me out to think that someone actually had this in their house like this..It smelled like smoke, and I honestly don't think it was ever cleaned. After hours of scrubbing, and bleaching the CRAP out of it, Alax and I ripped the back off and the bottom of the drawer, got the measurements and went to Home Depot and had them cut new CLEAN pieces. Then we spray painted the back white and nailed it on! So here are the before and after pics!




 The total cost of the project was under $10!! Not too bad if you don't mind a LOT of cleaning :)
Happy Monday!!


  1. You are truly a miracle worker! I can't even believe it's the same microwave stand! Great job!!!

  2. I know you told me it was gross, but seeing the pictures really helps me understand. The after picture is amazing! Looks so cute.
