Come see what I did to this unwanted mid-century cabinet!
I turned the whole cabinet upside down, and shifted a few things around
ABOVE: See the long drawer on bottom
BELOW: See the long drawer is now on top
I replaced the moldy backer with hardwood flooring and did the same to the top.
The fancy corbels are resin book ends from HomeSense. I used lots of salvaged
molding pieces to finish the look and to hide some of the carving on the side doors.
Scroll back up to the before and you can see the carved lines.
I purchased 2 saddle stools from Craig's list for our seating,
and painted them in a playful distressed turquoise.
We love eating meals here and working on small projects.
4 the love of WOOD is all about my adventures in re-purposing vintage furniture. I live on the west coast of Canada and enjoy my country view. I hope to inspire you to try your hand at up cycling and provide a unique perspective when looking at unwanted items.
