Have you kept random pieces of furniture around, on the off chance that you'll refurbish them down the road? We have moved this cabinet, originally used as a TV stand, from rental-to-rental for the past eight years. It dates back to Eddie's childhood, and his mom originally white washed it years and years ago, and we finally updated it for our office/nursette.
spray paint and new hardware, this worn piece of furniture is now a high-performance printer and work station. We've filled it with office essentials; stapler, tape, pens/pencils, hole punch and more (perfectly sized woven tray found at Target / Smith & Hawken). Behind the doors are reams of paper, printer cartridges, extra file folders and other supplies (white supply box from IKEA).
