Fun New Uses for Old Things
Tammy Hernandez joined local Interior Designer Lora Coburn at The Rebuilding Center. Their mission? To help us look at things a little differently! As a designer, Lora can look at old things and see useful fun new pieces for our homes. She sees uses for things like old light fixtures, an old hot tub and a display wall from an airport. And, she showed us how she turned two broken-down kitchen cabinets and crusty old door into a cool new desk.

Here are Lora's tips for making the desk:
1. Be sure to scrape and sand off as much of the chipped paint as possible and get a nice even sanding over entire wood piece, so primer can adhere.
