THREE PIECES BUILT INTO ONE

 


I built this cabinet using 3 different pieces of furniture, trim, appliques, and 2 dark pine doors.
 
 
 
2 nightstands were screwed together for the base cabinet and the doors were
used to close in the open section of the nightstands for hidden storage.
 
 
 
 
I mimicked the oval shapes in the applique and the drawer handles.
 

 
 BACK                             FRONT


 
Here are some close ups to help understand how 3 different moldings were used to frame the base.
 
 
The square embellishment (plastic) was attached to a thick square of wood.
 
 

The top was built using a discarded bookshelf frame and 10" boards
from an old waterbed frame were used for shelves.



The top was trimmed in more moldings and the sides got banister turnings.



I'm in love with this new wallpaper and lined everything I could on this piece.
 

The cabinet is built in 2 pieces so it can easily be transported. The top simply sits on the bottom.


And I'm keeping it!
WAHOO!
