Orange cabinet on wheels

Do ya remember the finds I got a couple of weeks ago. Well I have yet to work on some of those pieces, but I have cleaned up one of them.

The orange cabinet I found at Goodwill

I knew it was dirty but man, once I cleaned it, it was super dirty. All I used was some soap, water and a magic erase, and let me tell you those things really do work. They left the paint looking almost new, it had so many sharpie marks and dirt.

Big difference huh

It still has some scratches but it's not so bad over all, I still don't know if I want to paint it or leave it as is, and whether or not to make it into a bench by adding a cushion to the top. Ether way it's working the way it is right now.

I gathed some stuff I had around the house to dress it up a little.

At the top I have the latest issues of my favorite decor magazines, some seashells and a basket to drop off keys and mail when we fist walk in. Anyways this is what I have done with this piece so far.

By the way I moved my living room furniture AGAIN, I just couldn't find a good layout, but now that I have the blue chairs it looks more cohesive.

And even though I liked how it looked, since we been fixing our yard, I didn't want the window block.  A lot of our plants have gotten really big since then, and we have built a patio table since then, if you follow me on instagram you might of had seen it, I haven't been able to make the post because it's being raining a lot here in Houston, but maybe this week. Anyways this is how the furniture looks so far,

There is so many things I need to get rid off, like all those frames on top of the tv, which used to be by the window. I also want to change the paint color of the living room, although I liked it at the beginning I'm not so crazy for it any more, it changes colors like crazy, and it looks dull.

I moved the blue chairs to the window instead so you can sit there and look out the window on a sunny or rainy day, which we been having a lot of, and I'm loving it.

So far that's what's been going on with my living room.
