Original, as found condition.  I knew this had potential to become something fun and unique.
Added embossed wallpaper to one side entirely and half way up the the other side.  Left the top half of that side to become the office accessories.
The finished product.  The screen features a cork board, chalk board and picture gallery.  Its on original wheels so it can spin around to still be used as a room divider or screen to hide something.
I love using embossed wallpaper right now.  It gave the screen side just enough texture while the semi-gloss black paint makes it all blend into a whole.
The final touch... The picture gallery sports vintage black buttons at each juncture of the ribbons.

Greetings to all!  I am a closet junker and project person that has struggled with who I am for years.   I was thrilled to find this site and realize that there are others out there like me!! And that's a good thing! Thank you to everyone for celebrating the "Reduce, Recycle and Re-use" movement with your wonderful repurposed items.  And thank you for not only making it legitimate, but also financially productive to "play with junk".

 I have been quietly watching from the sidelines for a few months now and am very impressed with the creativity everyone shows.  Thought I would share one of my recent projects...
