A couple of months ago I received two end tables from some friends of ours (Thanks Steve & Angie!). They were headed for the curb when they thought of me. I have been chipping away at them…literally. I decided to cut the bottom of the cabinet even more to create a hair bow holder for Kayla. She has a truckload of bows that are all randomly strewn in baskets and we needed a little storage to harness them all. I created this similar to my jewelry organizer. This is Kayla’s new hair bow holder cabinet…glitter style!
If you remember the table started out looking like this.
I chopped the top off and created some lap desks and they look like this now.
Since I only needed the front of the cabinet I decided to cut off the back. First, I took the entire cabinet apart.
we, my friend Mike, ran the pieces through the table saw to cut them down.
Then we marked where the bottom hit the legs and chopped them off with a chop saw.
We were left with a narrow little cabinet.
So then I sanded all the pieces down and spray primed and painted them Krylon Satin White.
Using my Silhouette machine I created a “K” stencil using Fontleroy Brown font and adhered the vinyl stencil to the front of the cabinet.
Using Krylon’s new Glitter Blast spray paint in Sparkling Waters I spray painted the “K.” As soon as I was finished and while the paint was still wet I peeled away the paper and stencil and what was left was a glittered K.
This spray paint IS AWESOME! It literally sprays out a fine mist glitter. It is like a pouf stream of glitter. The sparkles have the most brilliant shine. LOVES THIS STUFF! However, in order not to glitterfy my entire house I gave the entire piece a couple coats of Krylon Clear Sealer. It is amazing…you can rub your hand all over the piece and not a sparkle will come off.
While I was at it I also sprayed the inside back panel with the Glitter Blast and a clear sealer as well.
Then I reattached the whole thing together, securing it with wood glue and nails.
Then I attached the glittered back piece with my air brad nailer and stapled four ribbons onto it so the bows could hang from it.
I also added a little crystal knob to finish it off and then hung it on the wall in Kayla’s bedroom.

So fun Beckie!! What an ingenious project. And I love the monogram too!!
Beckie, I love this! I agree with Jen…completely ingenious! 🙂 Now, I need a little girl so I’ll have an excuse to use glitter. 🙂
That is awesome! I love this! Since I live in a house with 5 males, anything using glitter is hard to sell here. But I sure do love looking at all the amazing projects!
Genius! Love this project and can’t wait to try this glitter spray paint! So awesome!!
You have gotten some serious mileage out of those tables. So glad they made it to you and not the dumpster! I am going to have to open my mind a little more to come up with something like this from a table. Well done.
I am amazed at what you did with this table!. The stools are really cute and the bow holder is brilliant. Love the paint color. Thanks for hosting this party!
Seriously Beckie – darling. I can’t believe all you did with that table. Awesome. It looks so darling in her room & of course being that I like anything hair related I love it even more! I don’t think there is a single thing you’ve ever done that I haven’t loved!
love this little cabinet of hers, and those lap desks! love how you see things that we don’t Beckie 😉
Awww thanks Mindy. I sure appreciate that.
you did a great job on this! I love it!
This is such a superb idea 🙂 Loved it!!
