Hideous Bakery Shelf Turns out OKAY!

I pulled this baby out of a back room in the Jackson Resale Factory  and paid $5 for it.  It was sight for sore eyes, folks.  My pal, Ian, hacked the top off for me.
Then I set to scrubbing it down.  I'll admit.  Even I thought at one point, what the heck was I thinking?!   And what the heck were the original owners thinking with that crazy 80's scribble goin' on?  What were any of us thinking in the 80's?!  Well, I'm here to say, trash can be turned into treasure!  It's now a pretty little piece in my soon-to-be-revealed CRAFT ROOM!!!!!!!!
Well?  Did you think even I had gone too far with buying that scary thing?  Naw.... everything has potential!  Ya'll know that by now, right? :)
